“The Daily Show” correspondents and husband-and-wife team have landed a pilot order for a comedy at TBS.
The pilot, which Jones will star in and write with Bee, will draw from the pair’s history with family getaways, depicting a family’s road trip to Key West.
The series will follow a family as they take a road trip to Key West. 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. The comedy aims to prove that no matter how much close proximity can lead a family to get on each other’s nerves, precarious situations and interactions with strangers can bring them together again.
“As we continue to move TBS in new and exciting directions, we believe that comedies like this will truly resonate with our target audience of young adults,” said Brett Weitz, senior vice president of scripted development for TBS and TNT. “We’re thrilled to be working with Jason & Sam Bee, two of ‘The Daily Show’s’ breakout stars and two of the funniest writers in the business.”
If the pilot goes forward to series, each season will follow a different getaway.
