Daily Show correspondents Samantha Bee and Jason Jones are working on a new sitcom pilot for the cable network TBS. The real-life couple has been developing several concepts for the channel, and the latest is sort of their own spin on National Lampoon’s Vacation franchise. In the show, Bee and Jones play the parents of two young children who road trip to Key West while, according to Deadline, they’ll show even though being stuck in a car together can “lead a family to get on each other’s nerves, precarious situations and interactions with strangers can bring them together again.” Each new season—assuming it gets picked up—would feature a new road trip destination. Sadly, the show will not feature moc-news interviews with unsuspecting members of the public ... Discuss

The entertainment industry giant NBCUniversal has agreed to pay $6.4 million as part of a settlement with thousands of former unpaid interns. According to THR, the suit, which was brought by several former interns that worked on shows like Saturday Night Live, claims that they were denied “minimum wage salary, overtime pay, social security contributions and unemployment insurance” and that NBC was violating labor laws. Each of the interns is entitled to about $500 as part of the settlement. The pay out may just be one of many in the industry.

There was waffle wedding cake. A friendly pit bull. Place-settings adorned with the silhouette of Lil Sebastian (RIP). A cool jazz club. A menu that contained Chicky Chicky Parm-Parm, steak and a big ol’ cookie. This Parks and Rec themed wedding had everything a Pawnee resident would expect at such a magical ceremony (warning, the post from Buzzfeed contains some explicit language). The “wedding” was the work of a photography duo from Michigan who collaborates with local caterers and vendors to stage a wedding for the purpose of showcasing their work. Each year, they choose a new theme for the faux-ceremony, and this time, they made the obvious choice: The union of Leslie and Ben. Almost everything used in the fake wedding was a nod to their favorite show—including the wardrobe choices, distinguished guest (including FBI agent Burt Macklin and the mysterious Janet Snakehole) and show references on all of the invitations. Sure, no one was actually married at the Parks and Rec wedding, but we can only hope that the photo shoot will serve as inspiration for a real couple to make this dream a reality ... Discuss

If you watch the zombie action series The Walking Dead, you may have noticed that during a scene in a church sanctuary in this week’s episode, instead of hymn numbers (as Uproxx, who posted the image below, notes) posted on a board at the front of the room, there was what appeared to be Bible verse references. The makers of the AMC series are known for their attention to small details and hidden Easter eggs, so it didn’t take long for viewers to start investigating. An observant Redditor posted the evidence, and found that all of the verses displayed (Romans 6:4, Ezekiel 37:7, Matthew 27:52, Revelation 9:6, Luke 24:5) had one thing in common: They each talk about the dead rising ...

As Parks & Rec gets ready to bow out of its delightful run, its stars are gearing up for other projects. Long careers seem assured for the likes of Chris Pratt, Aziz Ansari Aubrey Plaza, Rashida Jones, Nick Offerman and Adam Scott, but what of beloved team leader Amy Poehler? Well, it turns out she'll be re-teaming with Parks & Rec executive producer and staff writer Aisha Muharrar to write a new single-cam comedy for NBC, and the premise is one that might interest you. It will center around a young, agnostic woman who inherits a church building and a bevy of wild and wacky congregants. It's being described as "a work-place comedy" so it will probably be tonally similar to Parks & Rec, but word is, Poehler will be writing, not starring in the series. So you might want to get working on that audition tape, dear reader ... Discuss
