Under secret wrap with not much news to dispense another comedian from over at The Daily Show with Jon Stewart finally comes to HBO. We’re talking about Wyatt Cenac. HBO said he was coming this spring and here he is. WYATT CENAC: PROBLEM AREAS, starring the Emmy and WGA Award-winning comedian and writer debuts FRIDAY, April 13 (11:30pm-12:00am). Rather than sit behind a desk, Cenac embarks on an ongoing journey in the ten-episode series to understand the big issues of the moment and investigate real-world solutions, while putting a focus on the conversation of change and telling stories of civic-minded approaches that deserve widespread attention. Here is a trailer:

Isobel Yeung gives audiences an unprecedented look inside the chaos and rebirth of societies across the Middle East, from Yemen and Libya to Iran and Iraq.
