American television host, comedian and producer Conan O’Brien is due in Israel to film an episode of his travel series “Conan Without Borders.” He reportedly plans to visit Tel Aviv, Jerusalem and other locations over the course of five days.

According to Variety, the TBS talk-show host’s “Conan Without Borders: Israel” will be air on September 19 in prime time.

O’Brien has never been to Israel before, although comic Billy Eichner filmed a “Billy on the Street” episode in Israel for the Conan show centered on Madonna’s summer 2012 concert in Tel Aviv.

O’Brien first announced his trip to Israel on Twitter August 12, joking that he was heading to the Middle East to “help Jared Kushner” in making peace. Kushner and two other White House officials landed in Israel on August 23 for top-level meetings. There was no word on exactly when O’Brien is to arrive at Ben-Gurion International Airport.
