Jon Benjamin, a comic who was just nominated for an Emmy last week for the animated series "Archer," has made a deal with Comedy Central for a new show called "Jon Benjamin Has a Van," reports Deadline.com.

Comedy Central has agreed to 10 episodes of the magazine-style show in which Benjamin portrays an investigative reporter on the road seeking out interesting stories.

According to Kent Alterman, head of original programming and production for Comedy Central, "The show is largely scripted with a touch of improv."

The series is expected to hit the airwaves in summer 2011.
