Jon Benjamin Has a Van, a New TV Show

Comedy Central announced today that it has picked up Jon Benjamin Has a Van for ten episodes in the summer of 2011. Benjamin, the veteran comedian who voices Archer on Archer and the talking can in Wet Hot American Summer, will step out of the vocal booth to play a reporter doing human-interest stories with the help of a custom van. Says Comedy Central's Kent Alterman: "Jon Benjamin has always been a very good driver. Outfitting him with a brand new van, with automatic transmission and filled with video recording equipment, will really allow his creativity to flourish." Sounds good to us. [Comedy Central]
