Late-night talk-show host Conan O’Brien and Saturday Night Live‘s Amy Poehler guest star in the season premiere of The N’s animated comedy series, O’Grady, airing Friday, March 3 at 9 p.m. Following the season-two kick-off, fans will be able to go to www.the-n.com to view never-before-seen outtakes and other extras, and watch the episode again in its entirety.
Described as a cross between Friends and The Twilight Zone, O’Grady offers a humorous look at real teenage life with all its relationship issues, drama and general weirdness. The series revolves around Abby, Beth, Kevin and Harold, self-centered high school students whose already challenging lives are further complicated by inexplicable, bizarre phenomena afflicting their town.
In the premiere episode, O’Brien lends his voice and likeness to a character named Chip, the oldest lifeguard in O’Grady, who pines for the attention of Wendy, the less-than-perfect and sometimes flighty concession stand girl played by Poehler. The installment is one of six new episodes to air on The N, MTV Networks’ channel for teens. Other guest stars lined up include David Cross (Arrested Development, Mr. Show) , Will Arnett (Arrested Development, Danny Phantom), Rachel Dratch (Saturday Night Live, Click) and Rob Corddry (The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, Old School).
O’Grady is co-created by Tom Snyder, exec producer of Dr. Katz: Professional Therapist and Home Movies, and Sunday Pants director Carl Adams, and written and produced by award-winning production company Soup2Nuts (Dr. Katz: Professional Therapist, Home Movies). The series airs regularly on Monday nights at 9 p.m. on The N.
