Jon Stewart Picks His Post-Daily Show Landing Spot: HBO

4-year deal begins with short-form digital content

After spending 16 years at Comedy Central as host of The Daily Show, Jon Stewart has found a new network to call home: HBO.

The comedian signed a four-year deal with the premium cable network, but he won't be making his debut on any of HBO's TV channels. Instead, Stewart will initially create short-form digital content for platforms including HBO Go and the OTT subscription service HBO Now. The deal also has a first-look option for film and TV projects.
