General editor Geoffrey O'Brien says he has expanded upon the trend set by his predecessor, Justin Kaplan, of incorporating popular culture into an anthology once known for classical citations. Shakespeare and the Bible still reign, but room also has been made for Steve Jobs, Madonna and Michael Moore, Justin Timberlake and Jon Stewart. (AP Photo/Brad Barket, file)

Jon Stewart to return to TV in animated cable news parody


Jon Stewart is coming back to a living room near you this fall.

HBO President Casey Bloys announced Saturday that the former "Daily Show" host would star in an animated cable news parody, which will appear on HBO's online digital platforms and television, according to Vanity Fair.

The idea is it will be an animated parody of a cable news network, with kind of an Onion-like portal.
Bloys told CNN

Bloys added that Stewart is establishing an animation studio so he can "comment in real time during the day's news events."

Vanity Fair reported that Stewart will be working with the Los Angeles-based 3-D graphics company OTOY, which has a deal with HBO.

Stewart's short-form videos could come out as early as September or October, Bloys told CNN.
