‘The Daily Show’s Jason Jones and Samantha Bee Are Developing a Comedy for TBS

By

When TBS ordered a new comedy called Wrecked last week, reports also mentioned that the network had teamed up with Daily Show correspondents and married couple Jason Jones and Samantha Bee for a “family vacation anthology series.” Today, THR confirms that the untitled project has been given a pilot order and will star Jones with Bee onboard as a writer. The show is inspired by Jones and Bee’s own experiences and will center on a family as they embark on a road trip to Key West, Florida. Jones will play “hopeful dad Nate, who hops in the car with his wife and two young kids for a 24-hour adventure to the Keys. This comedy will prove that close proximity can lead a family to get on each other’s nerves but precarious situations and interactions with strangers can bring them together again.” If the pilot gets picked up to series, each episode will center on a different family trip.
