TBS Greenlights Black Box and Who Gets the Last Laugh

TBS LogoTBS has given the go-ahead to Deon Cole’s Black Box and Who Gets the Last Laugh?, two new comedies coming to the network in 2013. TBS has ordered six episode’s of CONAN writer/performer Dean Cole’s comedy which will find Cole providing his own take on “some of the most outrageous video clips to pop up across the media landscape. Cole brings a truly unique point of view to his commentary as he uses clips to riff on racial and gender stereotypes, politics and more.”

Who Gets the Last Laugh?, developed by Jason Goldberg and Ashton Kutcher, has been given a nine episode first season order. Per TBS: “Who Gets the Last Laugh? (working title) puts a new twist on the comedy format by pitting two comedians against each other in the ultimate prank challenge. First, given the same situation and elements with which to work, the guest comedians must dream up the funniest and most outrageous pranks possible, then successfully unleash them on the public. A live audience then determines which comic really got the last laugh.”

Announcing the two shows, Michael Wright, president, head of programming for TBS, TNT and Turner Classic Movies (TCM), said, “Deon Cole’s Black Box and Who Gets the Last Laugh? come to us from some of today’s brightest comedic voices, affirming the power of the TBS brand to comedy lovers. These shows are not only extremely funny but also irreverent, provocative and a little bit subversive, making them ideal for fans of TBS’s CONAN, The Big Bang Theory and Family Guy.”
