TBS Orders Alien Abduction Comedy Pilot “The Group” From Conan O’Brien and Greg Daniels

(via Deadline)

TBS is really stepping up their game this year.

Shows from Samantha Bee and Jason Jones as well as Angie Tribeca already has raised anticipation of the new of programming coming to TBS.

TBS/TNT President Kevin Reilly is trying to keep that anticipation up on the TBS end with a pilot from the minds of Conan O’Brien and The Office’s Greg Daniels

Their project, “The Group”, is centered on a support group for folks that think they’ve been through an alien abduction as they’re profiled by a very skeptical journalist. Of course, he becomes unsure of what’s going on the further he explores their stories.

We’d definitely hope this goes to series just so we can see the pilot of this. 

If this goes well, maybe all those fake shows that Conan makes faux promos for might get reconsidered?
