A comedy series set behind the scenes at NBC’s late-night classic The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson is coming to Seeso, NBCUniversal’s subscription streaming service.
The eight-episode There’s…Johnny! has been co-created by Paul Reiser, who starred in NBC’s Mad About You in the 1990s. Reiser will also serve as a writer and executive producer.
The series, taking viewers back to 1972, is described as a “coming of age story” about two young Tonight Show staffers. Seeso didn’t announce a cast but said There’s…Johnny! will premiere in 2017.
‘The chance to bring both Paul Reiser and Johnny Carson back to the NBCUniversal family is an awesome, once-in-a-lifetime thing,” declared Evan Shapiro, executive VP, Digital Enterprises, NBCUniversal.
There’s…Johnny! will intertwine its back-stage comedy with clips from The Tonight Show featuring Carson and guests. Until the Seeso series arrives, though, you can watch numerous clips – and even entire original episodes – for free on Johnny Carson’s Official YouTube Channel. Episodes also air nightly on over-the-air channel Antenna TV (weeknights at 11 pm ET, weekends at 10 pm). To find where to watch Antenna TV, use its channel finder.
Here’s a clip of Reiser’s first appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson, in 1982:
Seeso, an all-comedy service, is available for $3.99 monthly. You can find it at www.seeso.com, on smartphone apps, and via Chromecast, Roku, Xbox, Amazon Fire TV, Amazon Fire Stick and Amazon Instant Video.
