Samantha has now been given her own Comedy show by TBS.

Samantha Bee was born in Canada and she began her career by joining an all-female sketch comedy troupe called The Atomic Fireballs. Samantha Bee will now have her very own show. She used to work as a Daily Show correspondent but TBS thought she was good enough to have her very own show.

She is also working on a comedy series with her husband Jason Jones. She created the new show and she revealed that she will be its executive producer as well. TBS is trying to keep the couple together and they are trying to give them projects that don’t create any distances between them.

The new show is still under development and it is reported that daily issues and problems will be discussed in the new show and Samantha Bee will apply her smart and satirical point of view to look at those problems. She will also be this show’s executive producer along with her husband.

Brett Weitz who is the executive vice president of original programming for TBS said that he was thrilled to have Samantha and Jones working for them at TBS. He said that he really likes TBS in the sense that it makes things into a family fair. He also jokingly said that Samantha’s kids will be coming to TBS next week to pitch them animation.

Brett absolutely loves Samantha as he said that she is adored by the whole nation because of her sarcasm and ruthless wit. Samantha is always able to counter awkward situations by coming up with something fun.

Brett said that after watching her for so many years, he believed that Samantha’s talents would go rightly used in her very own show and that is why TBS decided to give her a show. The comedy series Samantha and Jones are working on is for TBS. TBS ordered ten episodes from the couple.

They will be making these episodes which will be inspired by their own family experiences. We will see Jones as the head of the family in the series who is making his way to Florida. Some actors that will be starring in the show include Natalie Zea, Ashley Gerasimovich and Liam Carroll. Production of the show will start in the last quarter of 2015.
