UPDATE: Jason Jones announced on Twitter that he’ll be leaving The Daily Show. “For 9 & 1/2 years, I have worked at one of the greatest TV shows of all time,” he wrote. “But… It is time for me to go.”

ORIGINAL STORY: Jason Jones and Samantha Bee, real-life couple and correspondents on Comedy Central’s The Daily Show, are bringing a family comedy series to TBS starring Jones himself, Justified‘s Natalie Zea, Louie‘s Ashley Gerasimovich, and The Neighbors‘ Liam Carroll.

The currently untitled series is based on Jones and Bee’s own family vacations and will follow a family of four as they road trip to Florida. TBS put in an order for 10 episodes set to premiere in late 2015.
