Please explain the expression "into the production".
The term "production", as it is being used in this clip, same as the performance of entertainment. This can be a play, musical, opera or, as in this clip, a martial arts demonstration. Using "into (something)" is a very common way to express information about a part of a period of time. In this case, Conan is referring to the first 10 minutes of the entirety of this performance. So he is in (and has covered) those 10 minutes out of the total. Another way he could express this would be to say "after 10 minutes of the production". Ex: 20 minutes into the lecture and our professor still hadn't arrived. Ex: Only 1 hour into the journey I really needed to go to the bathroom.
