Conan O'Brien is returning to network television, but this time to executive produce a pilot called "Vince Uncensored" for CBS.

The multi-camera comedy was created by Phoef Sutton, who previously produced and wrote on "Cheers," "Boston Legal" and "Terriers."

"Vince Uncensored" centers around a man who ventures to approach life more honestly after a life-changing experience. O'Brien's production company, Conaco also produced the now-cancelled NBC drama "Outlaw" and the 2007 comedy "Andy Parker P.I.," which was also on NBC.

The 2-time Primetime Emmy-winning talk show host was famously booted as the host of NBC's "Tonight Show" a year ago but came back to late night on PBS with "Conan" four nights a week.

O'Brien recently said that he was happy with his new show and life, but could not envision talking to Jay Leno again.

"There's nothing to be figured out," O'Brien told the Television Critics Association. "We all know the story and we all know what happened. I think it's better, just life is short. I've got kids and a family. I've got life to live and I'm really happy here so I don't think about it too much. And I'm sure he's busy."

O'Brien said that he's still friendly with fellow late night host David Letterman, who called him recently to make sure they "were good."

"I have a lot of respect for that guy," Conan admit. "I said he didn't owe me a phone call but I appreciate it and then we chatted about other silly things and that was it. So it was not a lengthy phone call. He's not a blabbermouth but it was nice."
