The Daily Show’s Jon Stewart Inks a New TV Deal with HBO

Follow TheCruu!

Hopefully by now you’ve gotten over your deep sadness for Jon Stewart’s retirement from The Daily Show.

You’ve learned to love Trevor Noah’s style & approach to the rebranded “TDS” … and you’re genuinely content, knowing that so many other comedic careers have been launched, carrying the torch of sharp, political comedy/commentary.

Just when you’ve settled in, you can lose you shit again because Jon Stewart has signed on with HBO to produce short-form digital content, a project that is expected to go live early next year.

HBO will also have first dibs on any television or film projects Stewart embarks on.

 

In a recent statement Jon said “Appearing on television 22 minutes a night clearly broke me. I’m pretty sure I can produce a few minutes of content every now and again.”

CNN Money reports that HBO has had its eye on Stewart since he announced his retirement.

“We would love to find a way to work with somebody as brilliant and gifted as Jon. Love to,” CEO Richard Plepler had said in August.

Well, let’s see what happens …
