Conan O'Brien Producing Medical Comedy for Fox THR

Late-night host Conan O'Brien is producing a medical comedy for Fox, which has the scripted show in development, according to The Hollywood Reporter's Live Feed.

The show is called "Bob's New Heart Show," a pun on the classic comedy "The Bob Newhart Show" and its medical theme, the story notes.

The script, from "Community" writer and co-executive producer Ben Wexler, tracks a doctor when he returns to his old neighborhood after a heart transplant and takes over a family practice.

Warner Bros. TV and O’Brien’s Conaco are producing, with O’Brien executive producing along with David Kissinger and Jeff Ross.
