David Letterman Returns To Screens On January 12
My Next Guest Needs No Introduction with David Letterman premieres on Netflix in just a few days!
As someone old enough to have grown up with David Letterman, I was sad to see him vacate The Late Show back in 2015. I felt he was definitely still the Dave I loved, but that he'd grown tired of the late night format and wanted to do something different. My Next Guest Needs No Introduction with David Letterman seems to fit that bill; there's no desk, just two chairs on a stage, a studio audience, and cameras. I always loved Dave's comedic genius, but I feel his skills as a conversationalist were sadly underutilized with the standard talk show format.
Here's the official description of the show from Netflix.
"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."
Dave's first guest will be former President Barack Obama. The first season consists of six episodes which will be released monthly.
