David Letterman Lands President Obama As First Guest On His New Netflix Show
Almost three years since signing off from Late Night, David Letterman will be hosting a talk show once again. Netflix announced the first episode of his hour-long talk show series, My Next Guest Needs No Introduction With David Letterman, will premiere Friday, Jan. 12 and will continue through June as a "monthly event."
Letterman will kick off the series with a chat with Barack Obama, with the interview serving as the former president's first talk-show appearance since leaving office.
In addition to Obama, other guests on the show include George Clooney, Malala Yousafzai, Tina Fey, Jay-Z and Howard Stern. In each hour-long episode, Letterman will have a long-form conversation with the guest across a range of topics.
Letterman quit The Late Show in 2015 following a 22-year run. Obama appeared on the show eight times while he was in office.
