TBS is getting into business with The Daily Show‘s Jason Jones and Samantha Bee.
The Turner owned comedy network has handed out a pilot order to an untitled family comedy, which hails from the duo and is based on their experiences with family getaways.
Produced in-house by TBS, the comedy follows a family of four as they take a road trip to Key West and proves 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.
In addition to writing, Jason Jones will also star in the comedy as Nate, the hopeful dad who hops in the car with his wife and two young kids for a 24-hour adventure to the Keys. Assuming the project goes to series, each subsequent season will focus on a different road trip.
“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.”
