Conan O'Brien Gets Justice from NBC

1/27/2010 6:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

NBC may have defanged Conan O'Brien by getting back in bed with him.

The network just picked up an hour-long pilot produced by Conan O'Brien's company, Conaco, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The pilot -- "Justice" -- is centered around a Supreme Court justice who resigns from the Court to open a private law practice.

So Conan -- who would have put NBC on the no-fly list if he could -- apparently isn't that bothered about doing business with the network he says screwed him.

A chimney is a structure for venting hot flue gases or smoke from a
boiler, stove, furnace or fireplace to the outside atmosphere.
Chimneys are typically vertical, or as near as possible to vertical,
to ensure that the gases flow smoothly, drawing air into the
combustion in what is known as the stack, or chimney, effect. The
space inside a chimney is called a flue. Chimneys may be found in
buildings, steam locomotives and ships. In the US, the term
smokestack (colloquially, stack) is also used when referring to
locomotive chimneys. The term funnel is generally used for ships'
chimneys and sometimes to refer to locomotive chimneys. Chimneys are
tall to increase their draw of air for combustion and to disperse
pollutants in the flue gases over a greater area so as to reduce the
pollutant concentrations in compliance with regulatory or other

Due to brick's limited ability to handle transverse loads, chimneys
in houses were often built in a "stack", with a fireplace on each
floor of the house sharing a single chimney, often with such a stack
at the front and back of the house. Today's central heating systems
have made chimney placement less critical, and the use of
non-structural gas vent pipe allows a flue gas conduit to be
installed around obstructions and through walls.

In fact, many modern high-efficiency heating appliances do not
require a chimney. Such appliances are typically installed near an
outside wall, and a noncombustible wall thimble allows vent pipe to
be run directly through the outside wall.

This was obviously part of the payoff deal when he left.
Now we know why he said NBC was such a great place for him for 20 years.

PB & J    

Let's not forget. Aside from his quirky persona on The Tonight Show, Conan has always been a writer as well as a successor producer. We tend to forget that his talents far outreach those in front of the camera.

Way to go, Conan!

i can't imagine he has any problems taking more money from them, who would.
also there would be a head of orig programming or something like that at conaco dealing with the acquisitions dept at NBC. it wouldn't be like Coco would pull out a tape at the end of a session with the lawyers and ask them to check it out, it would be entirely separate from the negotiations.
its almost impossible to get a pilot funded, it would be bad business not to do a deal with them. for each one that gets funded there are hundreds that do not.
he is smart, funny and a nice guy.

ps jay leno sux, his humour is cringey and dated and nails on the chalkboardesque.

I guess this poses a dilemma for all the Conan fans who vowed to boycott NBC. Are they going to boycott NBC's new show produced by Conan's company?

It only proves that it's all show business with the emphasis on business. If I was one of the Conan fans who was going into fits the last few weeks, I would feel a bit used by O'Brien.

It was all sound and fury signifying not much of anything.
