For the deal, Stewart will be producing short-form, digital content to be featured on HBO Go and HBO Now, which aims to update regularly throughout the day. The contract also gives HBO a first-look option on Stewart’s other television/film endeavors.
In partnership with Los Angeles-based cloud graphics company OTOY Inc., Stewart is working on new technology to allow him to produce the content quickly for fast and frequent updates. As for the subject matter, Stewart will continue to “view current events through his unique prism,” according to the press release. While he may not be returning to the desk, we can probably expect our daily dose of Stewart to be something similar to his work from The Daily Show.
Stewart left The Daily Show in August after serving as the primary anchor for 16 years. Three months later, it seems difficult for Stewart to stay off screen however. “Appearing on television 22 minutes a night clearly broke me,” he said in the release. “I’m pretty sure I can produce a few minutes of content every now and again.”
