David Letterman arrives on Netflix next week

And just like that, David Letterman is back:

David Letterman has amassed an all-star roster of guests for his Netflix talk show series, titled My Next Guest Needs No Introduction with David Letterman. The 60-minute show will stream monthly with the first episode launching on Friday, Jan. 12 and the additional five episodes streaming, one a month, after that.

Letterman will kick off the series with a chat with Barack Obama, serving as the former president’s first talk show appearance since leaving office. Other guests set for Letterman’s series are George Clooney, Malala Yousafzai, Jay-Z, Tina Fey and Howard Stern.

Each episode will be centered around one person Letterman finds fascinating, with the two engaging in in-depth conversations both inside and outside a studio setting. The show will also feature field segments with Letterman embarking on trips related to the guest featured in each episode.

A monthly pace seems just about right for a retired talk-show host. I’m really looking forward to this.
