Created by Master of None ’s Alan Yang and 30 Rock ’s Matt Hubbard (both of whom also worked on Amazon Prime’s Forever, starring Rudolph and Fred Armisen), the show will star Rudolph as a woman “whose seemingly perfect life is upended after her husband leaves her with nothing but 87 billion dollars.” The humanity! Rudolph is also executive-producing the show with Natasha Lyonne, Danielle Renfrew Behrens, and … Dave Becky .

Photo: Scott Kowalchyk/CBS via Getty Images Jon Stewart ’s return to television (or should we say, debut on apps that you can play on your television) finally has a title. Today, Apple TV+ announced that The Problem With Jon Stewart would launch on the streaming service sometime in the fall of 2021. Stewart will host the series, which Apple describes as “a multiple-season, one-hour, single-issue series which will explore topics that are currently part of the national conversation and his advocacy work.” So, you see, you’re looking at the problem with Stewart. It’s not that there is a problem with Stewart, though there will probably be some classically self-deprecating jokes about that, so get ready. The series has already hired Edward R. Murrow award winner Brinda Adhikari as its showrunner and Chelsea Devantez of The Opposition With Jordan Klepper as head writer.

As part of a refresh to the Roku product line unveiled Tuesday, future Roku remote controls will now feature a dedicated Apple TV+ shortcut button. Roku offers just four such buttons on its remotes, making them incredibly valuable real estate for platforms, which actually pay Roku for the right to be included.
