Jon Stewart signs HBO deal to produce short-form content

Jon Stewart and HBO have concluded an exclusive four-year production pact, which marks the next phase of Stewart’s career.

The deal will start with short-form digital content, which will be showcased on HBO NOW and HBO GO – and includes a first-look option for other film and TV ventures.

In his first project for HBO under the new deal, Stewart will view current events through his “unique prism”.

Working with the cloud graphics company OTOY, he is developing new technology that will allow him to produce timely short-form digital content – which will be refreshed on HBO NOW multiple times throughout the day. Additional projects will be announced as they are confirmed.
