Jon Stewart Signs 4-Year Production Deal with HBO

1 minute read

Jon Stewart’s post-Daily Show career is beginning to take shape.

The former host, who was succeeded by Trevor Noah in September, signed a four-year production deal with HBO, the network announced Tuesday. Stewart will produce “short-form digital content,” according to the announcement, in addition to giving HBO a first look at other film and television projects.

“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,” Stewart joked in a statement.

Stewart will continue to cover current events with video content, created in partnership with graphics company OTOY Inc., that will be refreshed on HBO NOW, the standalone HBO service that doesn’t require a cable subscription, multiple times a day.
