EXCLUSIVE: I’ve learned that three veterans of The Daily Show With Jon Stewart — co-executive producers Adam Lowitt, Jennifer Flanz and Steve Bodow — are being tapped as new showrunners for Comedy Central‘s long-running late-night show. They would succeed Rory Albanese, who last week left to move to Los Angeles for primetime comedy development under a two-script deal with Warner Bros. TV. Lowitt, Flanz and Bodow, all multiple Emmy winners for their work on the show, are expected to be upped to executive producers. Lowitt has been on The Daily Show for eight years, having started in 2005 as a segment producer; Flanz has been on the program for seven years, having started as a coordinating producer in 2006; Bodow has been a writer on The Daily Show for a decade, including a stint as head writer.
