Netflix has taken the wraps off David Letterman’s new six-episode talk show series. Newly titled My Next Guest Needs No Introduction with David Letterman, the one-hour talk show will start streaming January 12 with President Barack Obama as the inaugural guest. It will be his first talk-show appearance since leaving office nearly a year ago.
A new episode will come out monthly during 2018, and the first season’s guest list is a doozy: Along with Obama, it features George Clooney, Malala Yousafzai, Jay-Z, Tina Fey and Howard Stern. Check out the promo above.
The show will feature Letterman and one guest in interviews that take place both inside and outside a studio setting. It also will include field segments featuring Letterman, whose Late Show run ended in 2015. RadicalMedia and Letterman’s Worldwide Pants are producing.
