Daily Show Correspondents Samantha Bee, Jason Jones Develop CBS Comedy

Samantha Bee and Jason Jones Take Their Funny to CBS

I love when my favorite Daily Show correspondents go on to do other cool things, and so I was happy to see this story that Samantha Bee and Jason Jones are co-writing a CBS comedy project in which they would also star.

Jones and Bee — who are married! I had no idea! — are also creating the as-yet-untitled show, which revolves around the world of a celebrity chef. Jones is set to play the chef, while Bee would play one of two women who keeps his cooking empire afloat.

I'd just been thinking recently that I'd love to see more from Bee, who's one of my favorite Daily Show correspondents but hasn't worked a ton outside the show. Same goes for Jones, actually, though he's going to appear on an upcoming episode of How I Met Your Mother. I'm curious to see what the two of them come up with for this project, especially since the realm of celebrity chefs seems ripe for comedy. Will Jones's character be more Gordon Ramsay or Rocco Dispirito? It should be fun to find out.

i love the idea of this show and i can't wait to see if it comes to fruition and what it's like. i miss seeing new comedies and things of this nature and to have a couple behind it - that's going to give us a great dynamic i think.
