Jon Stewart delves into society’s ‘problems’ in new Apple TV Plus show

Jon Stewart returns to your screen. The talk show host’s new news series, The problem with Jon Stewart, premieres on Apple TV + starting September 30, and the show’s trailer teases Stewart by tackling all manner of social “issues.”

In the 30-second teaser, Stewart can be seen discussing everything from the struggle to comprehensive veteran care, to systemic racism, to better ways to support the American working class. There’s a preview of a producer meeting, a lively guest panel, and two interviews: one with U.S. Secretary of Veterans Affairs Denis McDonough and one with U.S. Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen.

According to an official press release, the show “explores complex topics through the different perspectives of stakeholders, experts and individuals facing these challenges.”

“Welcome to The Problem with Jon Stewart. We should put a comma in there, ”jokes Stewart at the end of the trailer.

The problem with Jon Stewart marks Stewart’s first TV host role since resigning from The daily show in 2015, and its first project under its multi-year contract with Apple TV +.

The show is directed by Brinda Adhikari, who is an executive producer alongside Stewart, Richard Plepler and James Dixon. Chelsea Devantez is head writer and Lorrie Baranek is supervising producer.
