David Letterman's Netflix show premieres this month with guest Barack Obama

My Next Guest Needs No Introduction With David Letterman | Trailer [HD] | Netflix

"My Next Guest Needs No Introduction" marks Letterman's return to the hosting seat following his long run hosting "The Late Show,". The streaming service announced today that the show, My Next Guest Needs No Introduction with David Letterman, will premiere on January 12 and that its first guest will be President Barack Obama.

Almost 14 million people watched Letterman's final show on CBS in May 2015. He will also host Jay-Z, Howard Stern, George Clooney, Tina Fey, and Nobel Prize-winning activist Malala Yousafza.

The streaming platform teased the new show's January 12 launch in a tweet with a lineup topped by the former U.S. leader: "Obama".

With a title like that, Letterman will need to bring on some truly top-notch guests - and he delivers. These segments will allow him to "dig deeper" into topics related to the guest featured in the episode. Interviews will take place both inside and outside a studio setting.

Obama is no stranger to talking shop with Letterman, having appeared eight times on "The Late Show" during Letterman's tenure.

Letterman resigned from his post on the show in 2015 after almost 22 years at the helm. The 70-year-old has made a few appearances on television during his hiatus, including one well-received 2016 episode of National Geographic Channel's Years of Living Dangerously in which he traveled to India to explore climate change and its impact on the real world.
