CONAN Without Borders: Italy to Air Wednesday, April 11

TBS’ CONAN will take the show internationally for the ninth time in three years as the popular host travels to Italy. CONAN Without Borders: Italy will be a primetime special premiering Wednesday, April 11 at 10 p.m. (ET/PT) on TBS.  For his latest adventure, O’Brien put a different spin on his usual travel shows bringing along fan favorite show staffer Jordan Schlansky.

During his week in Italy, Conan visited various sites throughout the country.  He took a whirlwind road trip from Florence to Naples, meeting the people, and enjoying Italian food and culture.  He rented a vintage 1962 Fiat, taking a drive through the Chianti wine country.  He visited the hilltop Tuscan town of Cortona, where frequent visitor Jordan is honored by the mayor.  Additionally, Conan does a guest turn on the popular Italian soap opera "Un Posto Al Sole."

CONAN Without Borders: Italy marks O'Brien's ninth international adventure in the past three years.  Most recently he traveled to Haiti. After hearing President Trump’s disparaging remarks about Haiti, O’Brien immediately announced his intentions to visit the island nation.  There he showed the strength of the people and the beauty of the country.  He has travelled to Mexico City where he shot an episode of CONAN  with the help of an all-Mexican staff, crew, guests Vicente Fox, Diego Luna and an all-Mexican studio audience.  He has made headlines as the first American late-night host to shoot in Cuba in more than 50 years.  He became the first American late-night personality ever to host a show from Armenia as well as South Korea.  O’Brien has joined former First Lady Michelle Obama at the international Air Force Base in Doha, Qatar, to perform for the troops stationed overseas.  In previous years, O'Brien has done special shows from New York, Chicago, Dallas, San Diego and Atlanta.

CONAN airs Monday-Thursday at 11 p.m. (ET/PT) on TBS.  The show is produced by Conaco LLC, with Jeff Ross serving as executive producer.
