TBS orders two reality series

'Black Box,' 'Last Laugh' to premiere in 2013

With “The Big Bang Theory” an offnet staple for TBS, the cabler is ramping up its originals with the pickup of reality series from Conan O’Brien and Ashton Kutcher.

“Deon Cole’s Black Box” stars “Conan” writer Cole offering his offbeat commentary on a handful of video clips. TBS has ordered six episodes of “Black Box,” which is exec produced by O’Brien, Cole, Jeff Ross, David Kissinger and Doug Karo.

Net has ordered nine episodes of “Who Gets the Last Laugh,” from exec producers Kutcher and Jason Goldberg. Premise is that two comedians dream up outrageous pranks and then unleash them on the public, with a live audience determining which was funnier.

Both shows are produced by Warner Horizon and will debut in 2013.

“These shows are not only extremely funny but also irreverent, provocative and a little bit subversive,” said TBS president Michael Wright.

Other new comedies coming to TBS include the May 24 debut “Men at Work” with Danny Masterson and James Lesure. In July, net will launch “Sullivan & Son,” a new sitcom starring Steve Byrne and Dan Lauria.
