'Daily Show' correspondent joins ABC pilot
Jason Jones to star in 'How to Be a Better American'Jason Jones is the latest "Daily Show" correspondent heading to primetime.
The actor-comedian has been tapped as the lead in ABC's comedy pilot "How to Be a Better American."
"American" centers on a father (Jones) who embarks on a journey to be a better person and drags his family along kicking and screaming.
Jones, who has worked on Comedy Central's "The Daily Show With Jon Stewart" since 2005, co-penned a comedy project for CBS with his wife and fellow "Daily Show" corespondent Samantha Bee last season, which was eyed as a potential starring vehicle for them. He also did an arc on CBS' "How I Met Your Mother."
