A Respite From The Orange

Smigel + Conan = Television Genius
The YouTube! clip that appears below is of a television pilot shot in 1991 entitled Lookwell. The show featured Adam West as the program's title character, Ty Lookwell.

The premise of the sitcom is fairly straightforward. Lookwell, the former star of a television crime-drama entitled Bannigan, decides he wants to help the local police department solve actual, real-life crime.

While the fact that this pilot was shot is not particularly interesting, the fact that Conan O'Brien and Robert Smigel created the program is. Unfortunately, the program never got picked up by a network.
