The series, titled "My Next Guest Needs No Introduction" will be a six-episode, 60 minute talk show with a new episode each subsequent month.

So the hour-long premiere will have two firsts: The former CBS Late Show host emerging from retirement and the former president giving his first on-camera talk-show chat of the Trump era. Late-night legend David Letterman, however, is going about it a little differently.

According to a promotional video released on Friday, an interview with Obama will be featured on the debut episode of Letterman's new "My Next Guest Needs No Introduction" Netflix exclusive talk show, set to drop on January 12.

The company hails its mirrorless I-shaped engine technology for being able to attain the compact size and design of the projector. It is also preloaded with WebOS 3.5 Smart TV interface, that allows users to access popular online streaming services.


The in-studio and outside of the studio interview series is set to be "intimate, in-depth, and far reaching", but it will be mixed in with the humor that fans have come to expect from Letterman. My Next Guest Needs No Introduction with David Letterman will air one episode a month. Dave's lineup of influential guests includes George Clooney, Malala Yousafzai, Jay-Z, Tina Fey, Howard Stern and President Barack Obama.

Obama is no stranger to talking shop with Letterman, having appeared eight times on "The Late Show" during Letterman's tenure. Letterman left "The Late Show" in May 2015 after almost 22 years on CBS including his 11-year run on NBC hosting "Late Night with David Letterman". In addition, Letterman will participate in field segments to dig deeper on a specific topic related to the guest featured in the episode.

Letterman resigned from his post on the show in 2015 after almost 22 years at the helm.
