What you need to know

  • Apple TV+ is beginning filming for Jon Stewart's new show.
  • You can be part of the live studio audience for free.

Apple TV+ is beginning filming the highly anticipated The Problem with Jon Stewart next week, and you can apply for free tickets to be part of the live studio audience.

The show, which was confirmed in April and will land on the streaming service this September, will see Steward discuss current events and more.

"The Problem with Jon Stewart" is a multiple season, one-hour, single-issue series which will explore topics that are currently part of the national conversation and his advocacy work. Each season of the series will be further explored in a companion podcast to continue the discussion.

Those who want to be in on the recording can apply for tickets now, although you'll need to be COVID-free and fully vaccinated, obviously enough. It appears that recording will be taking place on July 14 and July 16.

Apple hasn't said when the show will air beyond that vague September window, unfortunately. The show will join other non-fiction content on Appel TV+ amid a continued expansion of its catalog.
