Former Late Show host David Letterman’s forthcoming Netflix series — a six-part, monthly event — has unveiled its first release date and guest list.
Each hour-long interview will be conducted by David Letterman partly in front of a live audience (with the CBS alum still sporting his retirement beard). One of the six new episodes will be released each month, with January 12’s guest being former President Barack Obama.
Following the 44th President will be George Clooney, Malala Yousafzai (below), Jay-Z, Tina Fey, and Howard Stern.
Letterman’s show, titled My Next Guest Needs No Introduction with David Letterman, will go beyond the studio. “Field segments will bring Dave 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,” says Netflix.
Letterman’s subjects are billed as “extraordinary figure[s] whom Dave finds fascinating. In interviews that take place both inside and outside a studio setting, the conversations are intimate, in-depth and far-reaching, with the levity and humor Dave’s fans know and love.”
