It looks as though popular late night show host Conan O’Brien is headed to the Fox network! According to Deadline, Fox has just picked up a single-camera medical comedy called Bob’s New Heart Show, which is written by Community’s Bob Wexler and executive-produced by O’Brien.
The series follows a young, successful doctor who undergoes a serious heart transplant, which leads him to take over a small family practice in the neighborhood where he grew up.
The title, Bob’s New Heart Show, is a play off of the 1970’s CBS sitcom, The Bob Newhart Show, however there are very few similarities between the two shows.
Conan O’Brien will be executive producing alongside Wexler, David Kissinger and Jeff Ross.
