I recently became aware that Conan O’Brien wrote a pilot back in the 90s and was intrigued. Conan is one of the most talented comedy writers and so I had to check it out. The name… Lookwell, staring Adam West. You will not be disappointed. Adam deserves at least an Emmy nomination for his work. The pilot was never picked up sadly though so don’t worry about binge watching the first season. If you are fans of Conan you will not be sorry. Enjoy!
Some background from Wikipedia:
Lookwell was a television pilot written and produced by Conan O’Brien and Robert Smigel (of SNL fame). It starred Adam West. The pilot was broadcast on NBC in July 1991 but was not picked up as a series despite being a “personal favorite” of NBC chairman Brandon Tartikoff. A washed-up TV action hero—who at the peak of his career was ceremonially deputized by local law enforcement—falsely believes he can solve crimes in real life. The pilot was scrapped. O’Brien jokingly stated that when the pilot aired, it “was the second-lowest rated television show of all time. It’s tied with a test pattern they show in Nova Scotia.”
