Conan O’Brien has signed on to produce the upcoming TBS comedy series THE GROUP. The series has been described as a comedic X-Files, and follows the mis-adventures of a group of alien abductees. Greg Daniels, executive producer and writer for the NBC hit comedy series The Office, is set as executive producer for The Group. Although an abundance of details have not yet been released, O’Brien has remarked on the series,
The script is an absolute page-turner. It wasn’t even particularly that it was about aliens that attracted me to it. It felt like a very funny X-Files.”
Solidified as a late night talk show icon, O’Brien hosted the series Late Night With Conan O’Brien from 1993 to 2009, and currently hosts the TBS series Conan.
