Conan O’Brien: Interviewing Squirrels and Negotiating With Fox

March 19th, 2010 - 1:30 am ICT by Angela Kaye Mason  

Conan O Brien Mar 18 (THAINDIAN NEWS) In his recent Twitter posts, Conan O’Brien jokingly announced that he has been pretty busy interviewing the squirrels in his backyard. His followers have enjoyed many humorous quips from him, I am sure, but pretty soon, he maybe far too busy to continue with his regular Twitter posts. The squirrels may have to make way for a FOX.

Yes, Conan has been seen dancing with Fox behind the squirrels’ backs. A March 16th Article in “The Wrap” is quoted as saying, “Conan O’Brien and Fox continue their courtship dance, with a deal moving closer to reality — but hardly in the bag.”

Well Conan’s dance card is quickly filling up. He has an upcoming comedy tour called “The Legally Prohibited From Being Funny on Television Tour.” Now Deadline Hollywood is reporting that discussions are underway to make a documentary of the tour, which features Conan traveling 30 cities in a live comedy-music show. The movie wouldn’t violate the terms of the “hush” agreement which Conan made when he left NBC.

And now the interest which Fox has in Conan goes all the way up to Ralph Murdoch , who is said to have hopes of finalizing a deal within the next few weeks, and hopefully be able to release the news during the announcements of the fall line-ups in May 17. “We’ll get there,” a spokesperson from Conan’s group told the LA Times. One of the main issues seems to be finances.
