When Jon Stewart announced his upcoming departure one name leapt to the top of a lot of lists: Jessica Williams (dammit) Jason Jones. But, Jones has taken himself out of the running. First, news broke that TBS picked up a series written and produced by him and Samantha Bee based on their presumably hilarious family vacations.

Then, he confirmed suspicions by announcing on Twitter that he is in fact leaving The Daily Show.

Jones will be starring in the new TBS show. Bee will not. Natalie Zea will be playing the role of Jones’s wife. No word on why his actual wife (Bee) won’t be playing his wife, but I choose to believe it’s because she is still up for hosting duty and not because the network decided Jones needed a more conventionally hot wife.

The show starts production this summer and also stars Louie’s Ashley Gerasimovich and The Neighbors’ Liam Carroll. Each season will focus on a different trip for this family, like American Horror Story meets the Griswolds. The first season will focus on a trip to Florida.
