Samantha Bee throws her sash with the newly founded production company Swimsuit Competition into the highly competitive world of narrative and documentary television. She wants to make it very clear that she is not a scholarship program.

The company has signed a first-look deal with TBS for developing original content and will initially focus on developing content for television.
