Pete Holmes gets new Conan O'Brien-produced late-night show on TBS
The late-night field just got more crowded. TBS has just announced a four-week trial run of a new untitled comedy series starring comedian Pete Holmes coming this fall.
Holmes is best-known as the host of the You Made It Weird podcast. His new show, airing Monday through Thursdays, will follow Conan, and is being executive produced by a team that includes Conan O’Brien. It will showcase “the comedian’s incredible skill set, combining sketches, short films, live comedy, field pieces and in-studio guest interviews into a fast-paced half hour.”
“Pete Holmes is an enormously likable performer with an agile and innovative mind,” O’Brien said in a press release. “I’m really looking forward to his show, and I’ve already had my son program my DVR.”
