'Daily Show' Correspondent Jason Jones To CBS Pilot 'The Assistants'

• huffingtonpost.com

"The Daily Show" may have another correspondent leaping into the big time.

Senior correspondent Jason Jones is set to co-star in the CBS comedy pilot "The Assistants," Deadline reports. He'll play husband to Heather Locklear's character, a celebrity with a freshly hired, star-eyed assistant, to be played by David Henrie. This is Jones' second go-round with CBS; in 2008, he and wife/"Daily Show" co-star Samantha Bee worked on a pilot for the network about a celebrity chef.

Last year, Jones starred in a pilot for ABC, "How to Be a Better American," that was not picked up for series. On "The Daily Show," Jones has had a number of hit segments, but is perhaps best known for his on-location coverage of the Iranian election.
