          WYATT CENAC’S PROBLEM AREAS  will follow the Emmy® and WGA Award-winning comedian and writer as he explores America’s most pressing issues. Cenac, a longtime correspondent for “The Daily Show,” examines a wide range of social and cultural problems facing Americans in the show, which will feature documentary-style field reports that serve as the focal point of each episode. These segments will take him around the country, from suburban Minneapolis to downtown Cincinnati to rural Texas, as he investigates systemic issues from his unique perspective.

         Cenac will also tackle more benign problems facing Americans, offering comedic solutions to everyday inconveniences. In addition, WYATT CENAC’S PROBLEM AREAS will feature in-studio commentary on current events, addressing issues and engaging the audience to keep the conversation going through social media.  From 2008 to 2012, Wyatt Cenac was a writer and correspondent on the hit late night series “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart,” where he earned three Emmy® Awards and a WGA Award. The album of his hour-long standup special, “Brooklyn,” which he also directed, was nominated for a 2015 Grammy for Best Comedy Album. His other TV credits include a starring role in the series “People of Earth,” plus “Archer,” “Maron,” “Bojack Horseman” and “Bob’s Burgers.”
