Jon Stewart is officially heading back to the world of nightly news.
The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that Stewart’s new program set to debut on AppleTV+ this fall will be titled The Problem With Jon Stewart, and the bold strategy for the series’ structure is starting to come into focus.
Per THR, the series will dive into current affairs, tackling one specific issue per episode, ranging from subjects being spoken about as part of our national conversation to ones that are a part of Stewart’s ongoing advocacy work.
The series is already set to run multiple seasons, with each season being partnered with a companion podcast to boot.
It’s also been announced that the series has brought on Chelsea Devantez (The Opposition with Jordan Klepper) as head writer, and Lorrie Baranek (My Next Guest Needs No Introduction) as executive in charge of production.
The Problem With Jon Stewart will of course mark Stewart’s return to news television for the first time since he departed his iconic, beloved run on The Daily Show in 2015. Last year he wrote and directed the critically maligned film Irresistible, starring Steve Carell and Rose Byrne.
