Obama Will Be Letterman's First Guest On New Netflix Series

Other guests slated to be on the show include George Clooney, Malala Yousafzai, Jay-Z, Tina Fey and Howard Stern.

Netflix has provided its first glimpse at David Letterman's forthcoming talk show titled My Next Guest Needs No Introduction. It will also be Letterman's first televised interview after retiring as host of the CBS' The Late Show in 2015.

The streaming platform teased the new show's January 12 launch in a tweet with a lineup topped by the former USA leader: "Obama".

Time has apparently made the heart grow fonder as he prepares for his new show. In each hour-long episode, Letterman will conduct a long-form conversation with a single guest and explore topics of his own outside the studio.

However, due to their plastic lining, customers who put them in the recyclable waste effectively contaminate it. Creagh said coffee shops have been "pulling the wool" over customers' eyes by saying their cups are recyclable.

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. "These are people that I admire". Netflix's chief content officer Ted Sarandos told Variety that the company wants to increase its original offerings until they make up half of the service's entire library.

Letterman, 70, left his job as host of The Late Show in May 2015, saying he wanted to spend more time with his family after more than 30 years on late night television.

"Some people will join Netflix to watch that", Sarandos told New York Times reporter Andrew Ross Sorkin at the Vanity Fair New Establishment Summit in Los Angeles, according to Yahoo Finance.
