Conan O'Brien is spending his Presidents Day weekend in Cuba taping segments for an episode of his TBS talk show to air next month.

The network says Sunday that O'Brien is taking advantage of President Barack Obama's efforts to improve relations with the island country. O'Brien's show on Cuba will air March 4 at 11 p.m. Eastern Standard Time.

TBS promises the trip will give O'Brien's viewers "a rare glimpse into the daily life of a country not often seen by American viewers."
