Jon Stewart Hopes to Have HBO Project Ready By September

10 May 2016 11:36 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Jon Stewart has been absent from television during this election cycle, but Monday at the University of Chicago, the former “Daily Show” host weighed in on the political landscape with his trademark mix of intellectualism, humor and disbelief at the state of the universe.

Speaking to former Obama right-hand David Axelrod during live-taping of the podcast “The Axe-Files,” Stewart insisted he did not miss being on television.

“I’m not restless,” Stewart said. “When you are in that soup it is very hard not to begin to think that the world functions on that currency.” He hopes to release his new project, a series of videos for HBO, in September, but isn’t making any promises.

“I’m not going to be on television,” Stewart said. “We are working on technology and animation to do interesting little small bits. I’d love to have it ready by September but not necessarily for the election. »

Comcast has fired back to Byron Allen’s Entertainment Studios, calling the company a “serial litigant” and denying that it has failed to abide by its FCC obligations regarding carriage of minority-owned TV channels.

Entertainment Studios and the National Association of African-American Owned Media filed a petition with the FCC last month claiming that Comcast has failed to comply with commitments it made to the FCC as part of its 2011 acquisition of NBCUniversal.
