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

Late night talk show host David Letterman is returning to television next week with an interview of former U.S. president Barack Obama, streaming giant Netflix announced Friday.

Actor George Clooney, Nobel peace laureate Malala Yousafzai, actress Tina Fey, shock jock Howard Stern and rap superstar Jay-Z complete the lineup. The six-episode show features Letterman extensively interviewing one person inside and outside of a studio setting.

This screengrab shows a preview of David Letterman (R)'s interview with former U.S. president Barack Obama which will be shown on Netflix.

The booking is a huge win for Letterman and Netflix since it will be Obama's first television talk show appearance since leaving office. Late-night legend David Letterman, however, is going about it a little differently. The first episode will premiere on Friday, January 12, 2018 with each subsequent episode streaming monthly from February to June. In addition, Letterman will participate in field segments to dig deeper on a specific topic related to the guest featured in the episode.
