Sneak Peek: Max Announces Plans to Travel the Globe with Conan O’Brien

Anyone who has been a fan of Conan O’Brien‘s during his near three decade late night career knows that his on-location segments were instant highlight reels. O’Brien explored different lands, people, foods, and cultures while displaying his unique knack of fitting in everywhere while not quite fitting in anywhere at the same time. Today, HBO made an announcement that should have fans ready to pack their bags in anticipation on joining O’Brien on a series of sure to be hilarious global adventures to air on Max (formerly HBO Max).

Titled Conan O’Brien Must Go the new four-episode international travel series will feature O’Brien visiting new friends he’s met through his podcast, “Conan O’Brien Needs a Fan.” While the destinations have yet to be announced, O’Brien’s “Conan Without Borders” segment of his late night show had him visiting locations such as Cuba, Berlin, Japan, Greenland, Italy, and Ghana – to name a few of the 13 countries explored.

The upcoming Max series is currently in production and has yet to set a release date, but promises to be informative, funny, eye-opening, and… did we say funny? When asked to comment Conan O’Brien delivered a quote in the most Conan way possible, “My fans around the globe never asked me to visit them, so I did.”

HBO’s Programming Executive Vice President, Nina Rosenstein, said the following about the cable network’s new venture with O’Brien, “Conan is a national treasure…at least that’s what he keeps telling me. It’s been an absolute dream to work with him, Jeff, and the whole Conaco team. They’re everything you’d hope for – insanely smart, ridiculously funny, and nicer than they’d probably want to admit.”

Below you can find a sneak peek of Conan Must Go. Watch Awards Radar for more coverage of the series.
