Writer, producer, director, and actor Jason Jones rose to fame during his decade-long stint as a correspondent on Comedy Central’s Emmy®- and Peabody Award-winning program, The Daily Show, where his interviews garnered him critical and audience attention. As the longest serving male correspondent, he holds the record for most field pieces, most lawsuits and most people put in prison.
Jones left the Daily Show in 2015 to create and star in TBS’s The Detour. The show is currently the number one cable comedy in America. Alongside writing, directing and executive producing The Detour, Jones also serves as Executive producer on Full Frontal with Samantha Bee.Read More
On the big screen, Jones has appeared in Date Night, Pitch Perfect, Pitch Perfect 2, The Art of the Steal, Hot Tub Time Machine 2, Goon 2 and whole bunch of other crap you haven’t heard of.
Natalie Zea gets to show off her comedic side as she takes on the lead in the critically-acclaimed TBS hit comedy, “The Detour.” Created by former “The Daily Show” correspondents Jason Jones & Samantha Bee, the honest & hilariously dark show features the road trip antics of the Parker family – including Zea’s critically-acclaimed Robin – a sexy, outspoken, offbeat mom for the new millennium. “The Detour” debuted as the #1 cable comedy series of 2016 and returns for its 3nd season early 2018 – when the show will debut its first episode directed by a woman – Zea herself.Read More
Zea recently starred in the independent films “Too Late,” “Grey Lady,” and “Sweet Talk,” as a bored phone sex operator who forms a strong bond with one of her callers. In 2010, she was Will Ferrell’s hilarious psychotic ex-girlfriend in “The Other Guys.”
Zea also hones her creative juices by writing and is currently developing a comedy pilot for a major cable network. She hopes to shoot the feature film she wrote and will star in, “Imaginary Place of Ease,” later this year.
Originally from Texas, Zea made her way to New York where she earned a scholarship to the prestigious American Music and Dramatic Academy. After completing the program in only two years, Zea landed a role as part of the original cast of Kimberly Peirce’s 1995 short “Boys Don’t Cry,” which later evolved into the Academy Award-winning film by the same name. Having never lost her love of theater, Zea helped develop Los Angeles’ reputable Lone Star Ensemble, a theatre company in which she serves on the Board of Directors. She has a 2-year old daughter with her husband, actor Travis Schuldt, and lives with them in Los Angeles.
