Jon Stewart has named the key creative team for his upcoming Apple TV+ current events series, according to Variety.
Brinda Adhikari, Chelsea Devantez and Lorrie Baranek have all joined the untitled show. Adhikari will serve as an executive producer and showrunner, Devantez as head writer, and Baranek as the executive in charge of production.
Adhikari is a news producer who has previously worked with luminaries such as Diane Sawyer, David Muir, Norah O’Donnell, and Scott Pelley. Her story with O’Donnell on the treatment of migrant children at U.S. detention facilities along the Mexico border won her a 2020 Edward R. Murrow Award for best newscast.
Stewart — the Emmy-winning former writer, producer and host of “The Daily Show” — plans a new Apple TV+ current affairs series that’s yet to be named. The show, which will run for multiple seasons, puts Stewart back in the anchor’s chair “as he explores a host of topics at the center of both the national conversation and his own advocacy work.”
