Jon Stewart to Work With HBO

Apparently HBO now releases it’s press releases on Medium. Today they posted: JON STEWART AND HBO CONCLUDE EXCLUSIVE FOUR-YEAR PRODUCTION PACT.

“Jon Stewart and HBO have concluded an exclusive four-year production pact, it was announced today by Michael Lombardo, president, HBO Programming. The partnership marks the next phase of Stewart’s groundbreaking career, beginning with short-form digital content, which will be showcased on HBO NOW, HBO GO and other platforms, and includes a first-look option for other film and TV ventures.”

  1. Yay! More Jon Stewart!
  2. “Conclude Exclusive Four-Year Production Pact”? WTF?
  3. Who calls such a thing a “pact”? Is this like a suicide pact?
  4. And how is this concluding? They’re announcing the beginning of a partnership. Concluding the negotiation process is not something you announce or anyone but your lawyers care about.
  5. I guess John Oliver had nice things to say about working with HBO.
  6. But Yay! More Jon Stewart!
