Writers John Oliver and Rory Albanese of “The Daily Show With Jon Stewart” have signed a blind script deal with Paramount,  The Hollywood Reporter reports.

"It’s completely blind," Oliver said, according to THR. "The contractual details are that they have to physically close their eyes and keep them closed between now and whenever we deliver the final script. That way, when they eventually open them, they will either be pleasantly surprised or throw themselves out of the window."

To which Albanese added, "Actually, I didn’t realize it was that intense until John just said that. I thought they just gave us free money for a half-baked idea."
