Additional details are now available on Stewart's upcoming series, which will be called "The Problem With Jon Stewart."

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the name is a nod to the issues that Stewart will explore with the current affairs news series. Stewart is set to cover one issue per episode, with topics ranging from what's in the national conversation to issues that are part of Stewart's advocacy work.

The specifics are under wraps at this time, but Apple plans to provide a companion podcast alongside the show when it launches. Stewart will both host and produce the show, which is set to come out this fall, and Apple is anticipating multiple seasons.

In other Apple TV+ news, Apple today shared the official trailer for "The Mosquito Coast," an upcoming TV show starring Justin Theroux.

A brilliant rebel (Justin Theroux) and his wife (Melissa George) take their family on the run to protect them, but end up exposing them to more danger than ever. At every turn of their adventure, they encounter increasing threats and intensifying moral choices from which there's no turning back.

"The Mosquito Coast" is set to premiere on ‌Apple TV+‌ on Friday, April 30.

Jon Stewart (not his real name) is a washed up has been. Can't believe Apple is going to get into bed with this weirdo. He's never been funny, articulate, or well informed, but he's got the snarky propagandist spiel down pat. Boo to this. Booooo.
Wow...what did Jon Stewart do to you? You do know he does a lot of work to help victims of 9/11 and has won many Emmy’s for his old show right? Listen man, I’m Republican but don’t tell me this guy hasn’t done something good.

I get the platitude, but Jon is a celebrity because of this type of content.

What I liked about Jon Stewart’s Daily Show is that it was smart political comedy, it wasn’t just making punchlines about the political stories of the day, which I feel that’s what Trevor Noah does mostly.
