David Letterman’s six-episode Netflix talk show is scheduled to debut Jan. 12, and the first guest will be Barack Obama, according to Deadline.

Each episode of “My Next Guest Needs No Introduction” will run 60 minutes and will feature one high-profile guest. They will be released monthly from January to June. (RELATED: David Letterman: Trump Belongs ‘In A Home,’ Not The Oval Office)


It will be Obama’s first appearance on a talk show since leaving office. The other guests are George Clooney, Jay-Z, Howard Stern, Tina Fey and Malala Yousafzai. Letterman’s run on CBS ended in 2015.

As he explained in a trailer released on YouTube, “You never know when you might learn something. These are people that I admire.”

In August, Netflix and Letterman announced the talk show series as part of the streaming site’s larger plans to get comedians. Others have included Jerry Seinfield, Dave Chappelle, Amy Schumer, Chris Rock and Ellen DeGeneres.
