Almost three months after he hosted his final episode of The Daily Show on Comedy Central, Jon Stewart has signed a four-year, multiplatform deal with HBO.

The production pact announced on Tuesday will see Stewart create "short-form digital content" for the cable network's online sites HBO Now and HBO Go, as well as provide HBO with a first-look option for other possible television and film ventures by the comedian.

“Jon Stewart led a revolution that changed the face of TV comedy on The Daily Show,” said HBO Programming President Michael Lombardo said in a statement announcing the deal. “He graced our network nearly 20 years ago, so we’re thrilled to welcome back his immense talents in this next chapter of his career.”

Stewart's first project for HBO will involve working with a digital production company, OTOY Inc., to develop new technology and create "short-form digital content" on currents events for HBO Now.

“Appearing on television 22 minutes a night clearly broke me," Stewart said in the statement. "I’m pretty sure I can produce a few minutes of content every now and again.”

Stewart's signing adds to the list of big names HBO has signed this year, including deals with Sesame Street and sports media personality Bill Simmons.
