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

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

Interviews will be supplemented by field segments that aim to quench Letterman's "curiosity and desire to dig deeper on a specific topic related to the iconic guest", according to Netflix.

David Letterman is back, and he's keeping his giant Santa Claus beard. "My Guest Needs No Introduction With David Letterman" features season-one guests of Malala Yousafzai, Tina Fey, George Clooney, Jay Z and Howard Stern.

The series will stream on a monthly basis from February to June.

The booking is a huge win for Letterman and Netflix since it will be Obama's first television talk show appearance since leaving office. Having President Obama as his first guest is an attention-grabbing "get" in show biz circles, allowing Letterman to stretch his legs comedically while tackling bigger issues - and without worrying about angering advertisers.

News of the series was first announced in August. So we weren't surprised to learn last summer that David Letterman was putting together an original series for Netflix.

Unlike most Netflix shows, My Next Guest won't drop all at once.

Produced by RadicalMedia and Letterman's Worldwide Pants Inc, the series will feature intimate, far-reaching conversations that take place both inside and outside a studio setting, all garnished with Letterman's trademark blend of acerbic humor and levity.
