(Newser) – NBC and Conan O’Brien are already doing business again; the network has picked up the pilot for Justice, an hour-long legal drama from O’Brien’s production company, Conaco. O’Brien will serve as executive producer, along with Jeff Ross and pilot writer John Eisendrath. The show, which follows a Supreme Court justice who quits to start his own law firm, is one of the most buzzed-about on NBC’s pilot slate, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Anyone else hoping it winds up airing at 10pm?
