Jon Stewart is returning to TV over five years after leaving as host of “The Daily Show.”
Stewart will host an hour-long, current affairs series for Apple TV+ that will explore topics of national interest as well as his advocacy work. Stewart has been a passionate supporter of military veterans and 9/11 first responders, last year pressing Congress to approve legislation to help the latter and their families.
Each season of the show will have a companion podcast to “continue the discussion,” Apple TV+ said. The platform also has a deal with Stewart and his production company that gives it first shot at other projects.
Stewart will be an executive producer along with hosting his new Apple TV+ show, with the title yet to be announced. The series is expected to debut in 2021.
