Here is how The Detour TV show is described in TBS press materials.
TBS is hitting the road with a 10-episode order for a new comedy series from The Daily Show‘s Jason Jones & Samantha Bee. Jones stars in the series, which is inspired by his and Bee’s own experiences with family getaways. Also starring are Natalie Zea (Justified, The Following), Ashley Gerasimovich (Louie, We Need to Talk about Kevin) and Liam Carroll (The Neighbors). […]
An honest and darkly comedic look at family, TBS’s new series will follow a couple and their two young kids as they take a road trip to Florida. Jones stars as unfiltered dad Nate, who packs his wife, Robin (Zea), along with their rebellious daughter Delilah (Gerasimovich) and simpleton son Jared (Carroll), into the family car for what Nate is convinced will be the adventure of a lifetime. Every leg of their trip, however, is fraught with unforeseen disaster as they encounter one hellish turn after another. Plans call for each season of the show to chronicle a different family adventure.
Jason Jones and Samantha Bee are serving as executive producers on the project and wrote the pilot, which was directed by Steve Pink (Hot Tub Time Machine, About Last Night).
“This show delivers on exactly the direction we are taking our TBS comedies – honest, smart and provocative,” said Brett Weitz, executive vice president of original programming for TBS. “We couldn’t be happier to be in business with Sam and Jason on what we hope will be the first of many more projects together. Watching them step into the creator/executive producer role on the pilot really allowed the characters and the show to find solid footing from the very first frame. We can’t wait to see where they take this mildly dysfunctional family.”
TBS just renewed Jones’ wife’s series, Full Frontal with Samantha Bee, through the end of 2016. Get the full story, here.
