Conan and NBC Will Try, Try Again

OK, so Conan O'Brien's last try at producing a comedy series for NBC — the short-lived Andy Barker, PI — didn't go so well. No matter. Conan's Conaco Productions has a new project in the works for the network: a multi-camera comedy called Man of Your Dreams.

The show, from writer/actor Jay Lacopo, centers on "a womanizer who uses his expertise to help romantically challenged women." Hmm ... is anyone else getting hints of Will Smith's proposed Hitch series?

While I'm not immediately taken by the premise, I can think of one great way to give it a chance at success: Make Conan the star! OK, so that's not going to happen — he's a little busy with the whole late-night gig — but still, Conan as a slimy womanizer? I'd totally watch that!

One more interesting thing: This would be the only multi-camera comedy (think: the traditional sitcom style, a la Friends) in NBC's lineup — all of the Thursday shows are shot in a single-camera style. The multi-camera comedy seems like it's on its way out, but could Conan be the one to save it?

I loved Andy Barker, PI and Andy Richter Controls the Universe and was sad when they were canceled. Poor Andy Richter. I tend to like single camera comedies more (i.e. the Office, Scrubs, Arrested Development) but I think that's just because comedies shot this way tend to be more of my type of humor. Multi-camera comedies can be a bit "sitcomy", which isn't really my thing. But I love Conan, so I'd definitely watch!

pebby01 — the best way I can describe it is that multicamera shows have a more "sitcommy" feel. They also tend to be the shows with laugh tracks because they can be shot live in front of an audience. This article explains it pretty well.
