TBS Has Tapped Pete Holmes to Host a New Comedy Series
Comedian Pete Holmes will host a late night comedy series on TBS as just announced by the network. TBS has given a four-week run of the new series which will be executive produced by Conan O’Brien, Jeff Ross, David Kissinger, Nick Bernstein, and Dave Rath.
“Pete Holmes is an enormously likable performer with an agile and innovative mind,” stated executive producer Conan O’Brien. “I’m really looking forward to his show, and I’ve already had my son program my DVR.”
“Pete is a phenomenal talent with a truly unique point of view,” added Michael Wright, president, head of programming for TBS, TNT and Turner Classic Movies. “He has just the right comic sensibility and style we’re looking for to follow CONAN in our late-night lineup.”
Says Pete Holmes: “The first half of my meeting with Conan was spent making sure this wasn’t all part of a new TBS prank show called You Got Coned! The second half was spent expressing my sincerest enthusiasm and gratitude for this incredible dream come true.”
The new untitled series will launch in fall 2013.
