The Daily Show correspondent Jessica Williams is exiting the late-night show. Comedy Central announced her move this morning on Twitter.

The move comes after the Viacom-owned network signed the comedian to a development deal earlier this year, that included her headlining and producing a narrative pilot. The deal was announced in March as part of the network’s upfront slate. Comedy Central says she’s leaving the show to focus full-time on that pilot, which has not yet been shot. Her final episode is Thursday.
