- Brinda Adhikari will be the showrunner of an upcoming Apple TV+ show featuring Jon Steward.
An upcoming Apple TV+ show featuring Jon Steward has a showrunner, with Brinda Adhikari, formerly of CBS News, set to be in charge.
As pointed out by The Hollywood Reporter, it's notable that the show will be run by a news person rather than someone who has experience in comedy.
However, anyone worried that Jon Stewart's new show won't have a comic element need not worry. The same report also notes that there are others coming on board that have plenty of comedy chops.
Now we just need to wait and see when the show will be ready to land on our TV screens via Apple TV+.
