Jon Stewart Scores Comedy Central Pilot

Jon Stewart Since taking over the seat for The Daily Show in 1996, Jon Stewart’s star has continued to rise. The news has never been more interesting or funny, and all because of his excellent comedic delivery and timing. Stewart’s other endeavors, including books (Naked Pictures of Famous People and A Citizen’s Guide to Democracy Inaction), as well as producing The Colbert Report have taken him to the next level. Not to be outdone by… um,... himself, he has signed a deal with Comedy Central to produce a sitcom. The comedy, titled Three Strikes, is set in the world of minor league baseball and is written by Alex Gregory and Peter Huyck, writers for King of the Hill, The Larry Sanders Show, and Late Show With David Letterman. No other details have been released about who will star in the sitcom or when it will air.
