20 (30? 40?!) we'll obviously be running low on biopic topics. I submit this: may it age like a fine wine.
A woman, a late night talk show watcher and faithful follower of Conan "Coco" O'Brien gets into a car/motorcycle/airplane/barnyard accident and gets antrograde amnesia (right? yeah, i think thats right). Her family appeases her by recording episodes of the Tonight show for her to watch. Somehow the recordings are lost (in some hilarious accident - perhaps humorously mirroring the characters!). This leads a desperate family on a wacky adventure to find an aging O'Brien and try to convince him to record at least one more show.
Of course O'Brien has sworn off talk shows - having been kicked out of late night back in '09 (edit: possibly, a highly successful O'Brien is in far too high demand to meet with these people, hilarity ensues). After a half-hearted attempt at rejection, Coco agrees to once again grace the stage (replica) of the Tonight show.
Cross Promotion Opportunity: In the movie, and coinciding with real life, Coco will regain his coveted Tonight Show position, now that he is older and slower and less talented.
Possible love connections:
- A character researcher and Leno, who meet during an interview and reek havoc for exactly 5:25 min of film time.
- Old woman and Coco - they work out the memory issue a la 50 First Dates
- Old woman's daughter and Coco - because sometimes those May/December things work out
