David Letterman's New Netflix Show Has Some Stellar Guests Lined Up

The first of six David Letterman interviews for

Actor George Clooney, Nobel peace laureate Malala Yousafzai, actress Tina Fey, shock jock Howard Stern and rap superstar Jay-Z complete the lineup.

Veteran former US talk show host David Letterman will return to television on January 12 in a new Netflix show where his first guest will be former US President Barack Obama, Netflix Inc. said on Friday.

Taking his usual late night hijinks in a more serious direction seems like a natural progression in Letterman's semi-retirement, as the 70-year-old comedian's material has grown more political and socially conscious in later years.

First Blue Moon Total Lunar Eclipse in 150 Years Occurring this Month
The first full moon of the month shined on New Year's Day, and the second will peak on January 31 - marking the blue moon event. Others in the western half of the US will still get a good show, with the total phase of the eclipse beginning at 4:51 a.m.

Letterman's revival will certainly ride a viewership boost from Obama's first talk show appearance since he vacated office. Obama's appearance on the new show marks the former president's first television interview since leaving office past year.

"In each hour-long episode, Letterman will conduct a long-form conversation with a singular guest-and will also explore topics on his own, away from the studio".

The streaming platform teased the new show's January 12 launch in a tweet with a lineup topped by the former U.S. leader: "Obama". The only other time Netflix didn't make episodes of a show available to binge watch was a bit of a different scenario, because it was Chelsea Handler's half-hour comedy talk show Chelsea and that was because it aired three episodes weekly and they were taped in the same week.

Each episode will center around one particular person, and consist of in-depth interviews as well as field segments.

Obama is just the beginning for the Netflix-Letterman collaboration.
