David Letterman returns to television

Netflix has announced a new six-episode original series hosted by David Letterman.

My Next Guest Needs No Introduction will feature Letterman interviewing a range of influential guests including Barack Obama, George Clooney, Malala Yousafzai, Jay-Z, Tina Fey, and Howard Stern.

"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 a trailer released on Saturday.

The first hour-long episode will premiere on January 12, with each following episode streaming monthly from February to June.

This will be Letterman's first return to television since leaving the Late Show in 2015.
