After becoming The Daily Show’s longest-running correspondent, Samantha Bee is leaving the late-night show—but not the fake news business. Bee will host a new satirical politics show for TBS that she’s also co-executive producing with her husband, fellow Daily Show regular Jason Jones.
The duo is also producing and helping write a new sitcom about a family road trip gone wrong. But Bee isn’t the only former Daily Show personality to go on to bigger projects from the Comedy Central springboard.
