My Next Guest Needs No Introduction With David Letterman | Trailer [HD] | Netflix

David Letterman arrives at the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts for the 20th Annual Mark Twain Prize for American Humor presented to David Letterman on Sunday Oct. 22 2017 in Washington D.C

David Letterman is returning to late night-and he's bringing some big names with him. Former President Obama, the show's inaugural guest, will give his first TV talk show appearance since leaving office. Obama's episode - which marks the former Commander in Chief's first talk-show appearance since leaving office - will be released on January 12; subsequent episodes will follow monthly.

His return to television for Netflix was announced in August 2017, when the quick-witted host said that Pope Francis and President Donald Trump would be top of his wish-list for the series.

Called My Next Guest Needs No Introduction with David Letterman, the six-episode series will also feature interviews with actor George Clooney, rapper Jay-Z, radio shock jock Howard Stern, comedian Tina Fey and Pakistani education activist and Nobel Peace Prize victor Malala Yousafzai, the streaming service said.

The new show will consist of six hour-long episodes built around Letterman's star guests.


Produced by RadicalMedia and Letterman's Worldwide Pants, Incorporated, for Netflix, each 60-minute episode of My Next Guest is centered around "one extraordinary figure whom Letterman finds fascinating". These segments will allow him to "dig deeper" into topics related to the guest featured in the episode.

Letterman's Late Night With David Letterman ran on NBC from 1982 to 1993.

Letterman resigned from his post on the show in 2015 after almost 22 years at the helm. He has appeared infrequently in public since then; he made a cameo on NatGeo's "Year of Living Dangerously" docuseries.
