The Turner Upfront 2017 presentation yesterday morning included a series of new announcements that demonstrated the company's commitment to transforming the viewing experience, expanding platform availability and investing in premium content. They join recent announcements made about new series greenlights and projects in development.

● TBS announced a new four-year deal with Conan O'Brien that will keep his late-night show on TBS through 2022 and will extend the Team Coco brand into digital content, podcasting, gaming, pay TV and live events.
● TBS has given the greenlight to three new series: Miracle Workers, a Heaven-set workplace comedy starring Daniel Radcliffe and Owen Wilson and executive-produced by Lorne Michaels; Close Enough, a brand new animated series from Regular Show creator J.G. Quintel; and a new untitled series from the comedy trio The Dress Up Gang, whose viral videos include the popular My Roommate, My Friend series. The network is also teaming up with entertainment icon and actor Snoop Dogg to refresh and update the classic game show The Joker's Wild has titled the forthcoming project starring Tracy Morgan as The Last O.G., adding Cedric the Entertainer, Taylor Mosby and Dante Hoagland to the cast.
● TNT has greenlit two documentary series: Michael Moore Live from the Apocalypse and Who Run the World? from Sarah Jessica Parker, Morgan Spurlock and Refinery29. The network has also ordered a pilot for Highland, a scripted drama written by Liz Sarnoff and actress-comedian Margaret Cho, and announced Daveed Diggs, who earned a Tony® for the Broadway hit Hamilton, will star in the network's drama pilot Snowpiercer, which will be directed by Doctor Strange helmer Scott Derrickson.
● TNT is working with master storyteller and filmmaker Ridley Scott to develop a night of original science-fiction programming. Initial plans call for the block to serve as a showcase for hour-long series, short-form programs and other formats to be developed in collaboration with Scott.
● Super Deluxe, which has quickly grown to average more than 30 million unique users every month on social and recently hit the billion views milestone, will have its own 90-minute interactive, alternative late-night block on TBS called Super Deluxe.

The network has also announced a new special from comedian Jena Friedman, and has ordered a stop-motion animated pilot titled The Shivering Truth, created by Vernon Chatman and featuring the voices of Michael Cera and Jonah Hill.
● truTV's slate of five upcoming series includes Laff Mobb's Laff Tracks, which will launch later this year and provide a refreshing new take on traditional stand-up comedy; At Home with Amy Sedaris from the comedy icon; the comedic anthology series Bobcat Goldthwait's Misfits & Monsters; the scripted comedy I'm Sorry, from Andrea Savage; and the live call-in talk show The Chris Gethard Show.
● Cartoon Network recently greenlit Unikitty!, an all-new animated series produced by Warner Bros, that will follow Unikitty, the beloved fan-favorite character from the global blockbuster The LEGO Movie, and her whole cast of friends into a world full of adventure, excitement and dance parties.
● CNN will be adding five new original series to its slate in 2018: Detroit 1963: Once in a Great City; American Heiress: The Patty Hearst Story; 1968: The Year That Changed America; Kennedys: An American Dynasty and Pope.
