On Friday, January 12, Netflix will release a new, six-part talk show series with the former host of The Late Show, David Letterman. For the series premiere of My Next Guest Needs No Introduction, Letterman will interview President Barack Obama in his first talk show appearance since he left office in January 2016.

“Each 60-minute episode of My Next Guest is centered around one extraordinary figure whom Dave finds fascinating,” Netflix shared in a statement. “In interviews that take place both inside and outside a studio setting, the conversations are intimate, in-depth and far-reaching, with the levity and humor Dave’s fans know and love. Field segments will bring Dave to locations far and wide, expressing his curiosity and desire to dig deeper on a specific topic related to the iconic guest featured in the episode.”

David Letterman and his production, Worldwide Pants, worked with RadicalMedia and the Radical Brothers. “I got tired of people saying ‘What do you want to do?,'” Letterman told Variety last August. “I did what I wanted to do for 30-plus years. Netflix and the Radical brothers put this show idea together. 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. It’s not 10 hours a day, five days a week.”

Every month, a new hour-long installment of My Next Guest will premiere on Netflix. Future guests on the talk include Tina Fey, Malala Yousafzai, Jay-Z, Howard Stern, and George Clooney. After retiring from The Late Show in 2015, Letterman says, “I can’t tell you how great it is to be out of the damn house.”
