Take A Look At David Letterman's New Netflix Show, With Barack Obama As First Guest

“My Next Guest Needs No Introduction" debuts Jan. 12.

He’s back!

Legendary talk show host David Letterman’s new Netflix show, “My Next Guest Needs No Introduction,” debuts Jan. 12, and former President Barack Obama is slated to be the first guest.

The streaming service said the interview will mark Obama’s “first television talk show appearance since leaving office.”

Netflix shared a sneak peek at the six-part series on Thursday:

“I had a show for a long time and then I didn’t have a show for a long time, and I can’t tell you how great it is to be out of the damn house,” Letterman jokes in the trailer.

The host is set to interview Hollywood stars George Clooney and Tina Fey, Pakistani activist Malala Yousafzai, hip-hop mogul Jay-Z and radio host Howard Stern in subsequent episodes that will be released on a monthly basis.

The trailer doesn’t indicate what Letterman and Obama will talk about, but it’s possible the current administration will be a hot topic on the series considering Letterman has spoken out against President Donald Trump.

Letterman quit “The Late Show” in 2015 following a 22-year run. Obama appeared on the show eight times while he was in office.
