Pre-Upfront News: Swim Orders Series starring Jack McBrayer and Triumph

Busy morning, it seems. Here is even more awesome Swim news. It seems that Jack McBrayer (30 Rock) will be teaming with Triumph: The Insult Comic Dog (Conan) for a new live-action series. Here’s the scoop.

UNTITLED TRIUMPH/MCBRAYER SITCOM – Jack (McBrayer) is a former child star of a popular Lassie-type series that ran in the ‘80s and ‘90s.  After it was cancelled, his crude but beloved co-star (Triumph) spiraled into decadence and got Jack in trouble with him. 15 years later, with Jack finally self-sufficient, happy, and away from show business, Triumph finds his way back into Jack’s life. This new half-hour live-action comedy series is created by Robert Smigel (SNL, TV Funhouse, Conan), Michael Koman (Eagleheart, Nathan For You) and David Feldman (Real Time, Dennis Miller Live), starring Emmy®-nominee Jack McBrayer (30 Rock) and Triumph the Insult Comic Dog (Conan), produced by Poochie Doochie Productions and Universal Television.

To give you an idea of how this show may play out, here’s a clip from “Conan” when Jack and Triumph visit a Chicago Hot Dog joint during Conan O’Brien’s week in Chi-town:
