HBO Sets “Conchords” Special & Other Dates

HBO programming president Casey Bloys has confirmed that Kiwi musical comedians Bret McKenzie and Jemaine Clement are returning to the network this May with an hour-long “Flight of the Conchords” comedy special.

Set to be taped before a live sold-out audience during their United Kingdom tour, the presentation will feature the duo performing their classics and new original songs from their “Flight of the Conchords Sing Flight of the Conchords Tour.”

The announcement comes as HBO set a bunch of premiere dates for the early part of 2018 including the return of John Oliver’s “Last Week Tonight” on February 18th.

Then on March 26th and 27th will come “The Zen Diaries Of Garry Shandling,” the four-and-a-half hour, Judd Apatow-produced, two-part documentary about the late comedian and “The Larry Sanders Show” star.

Also on the way on April 14th is the premiere for HBO’s three-hour and two-film documentary presentation “Elvis Presley: The Searcher”. It hasn’t set a specific date but the Sundance documentary “Jane Fonda In Five Acts” has been confirmed to air on the premium cabler in late 2018.

HBO hasn’t yet revealed an air date for the second season of “Westworld” beyond sometime in 2018, though actor Jimmi Simpson has confirmed he’s returning as William in the new season – though many are wondering how.
