Obama Will Be Letterman’s First Guest on New Netflix Show

Barack Obama is set to make his first post-presidency talk show appearance on a brand new Netflix show hosted by David Letterman. The six-episode series, titled My Next Guest Needs No Introduction with David Letterman, will premiere on Friday, January 12 with the one-hour Obama interview and continue monthly after that. Letterman’s other five guests will be George Clooney, Malala Yousafzai, Jay Z, Tina Fey and Howard Stern. According to Netflix, the interviews will “take place both inside and outside a studio setting” and additional 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.” In a teaser video that accompanied the announcement, Letterman, who retired as host of CBS’ The Late Show in 2015, can be seen telling his live audience, “I can’t tell you how great it is to be out of the damn house.”
