Obama to star as first guest on David Letterman's comeback talk show

Obama to star as first guest on David Letterman's comeback talk show

Obama will be the first guest on "My Next Guest Needs No Introduction with David Letterman", set to begin January 12, Netflix announced Friday.

Famed light-night show host, David Letterman has been playing the cut for the last few years, after ending his run as the host of the Late Show, but now he's back with the new Netflix series My Next Guest Needs No Introduction with David Letterman. When he lost The Tonight Show to rival Jay Leno, Letterman jumped ship to host The Late Show until 2015 when comedian Stephen Colbert took the reins. New episodes will stream monthly.

The lineup of influential guests includes George Clooney, Malala Yousafzai, Jay-Z, Tina Fey, Howard Stern as well as Barack Obama.

In addition to the rapper, Beyoncé, and their daughter, Blue Ivy, actors including Thandie Newton, Jessica Chastain, David Oyelowo, Brie Larson and Mindy Kaling appear in various scenes of the project. The thing I like about it is that it fits exactly what I want to do and it's with people I'm fond of working with.

Instead of the five or seven minute conversation Letterman had on his talk show, the esteemed guest will chat with the seasoned interviewer for an hour discussing a range of topics. Netflix and the Radical brothers put this show idea together. It aims to spend $7 billion on content next year - up from more than $6 billion over the past year and $5 billion in 2016. "There's some people who will not quit because the show's coming on next month". And his first interviewee on "My Next Guest Needs No Introduction" will be former President Barack Obama.

"All of us in leadership have to find ways in which we can re-create a common space on the Internet", Obama said.
