NEW YORK (AP) - Jessica Williams is leaving as a correspondent on Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show” this week after four years. But she’s not straying far.

The network said Wednesday that Williams will be concentrating on a new scripted show that she’s developing for Comedy Central. That development deal had been announced this spring, for a show that Williams is to both write and star in.

The Los Angeles-bred comic, now 26, was the youngest on-air person at “The Daily Show” when she joined. She worked for the last three years of host Jon Stewart’s reign and most of Trevor Noah’s first year.
