Andy Richter and the Team Coco scribes land TBS special

Team Coco is inching closer to TBS.

The cabler announced Wednesday that Conan O’Brien sidekick Andy Richter will join with several veteran O’Brien writers, as well as comedian Reggie Watts, to host a special as part of TBS’ and Just For Laughs’ upcoming comedy festival in Chicago.

The one-hour special” Team Coco presents Conan’s Writers Live” (working title) will be taped on June 17 and run on TBS ten days later — June 27, at 10 p.m.

Show is similar to one that the O’Brien scribes have already produced to sold-out auds in Los Angeles. The eccentric Watts, meanwhile, has been opening for O’Brien on the once-and-future late night host’s “The Legally Prohibited from Being Funny on Television Tour.”
