David Letterman Gets New Netflix Series With Obama As First Guest
After a long hiatus, David Letterman is making a comeback to talk show hosting with a new show on Netflix.
The series is titled My Next Guest Needs No Introduction with David Letterman and as the name suggests its focus is on top celebrities of which Barack Obama fits in perfectly.
The show launches on Jan 12 and it will be Obama’s first on-camera talk show about the Trump era since his exit from office. Unlike other shows on Netflix which usually get released at the same time, Letterman’s show will be released monthly.
Netflix has also said, “interviews will take place both inside and outside a studio setting. The conversations are intimate, in-depth and far-reaching, with the levity and humour Dave’s fans know and love. Field segments will bring Letterman to locations far and wide, expressing his curiosity and desire to dig deeper on a specific topic related to the iconic guest featured in the episode.”
Other known guests on the Letterman line-up include George Clooney, Malala Yousafzai, JAY-Z, Tina Fey, and Howard Stern.
