One of David Letterman’s signatures as an interviewer was always his inability to hide his contempt for guests he didn’t care about or respect. It doesn’t look like that aspect of the Master’s prowess will come into play for his upcoming Netflix series, entitled My Next Guest Needs No Introduction with David Letterman.
I say that because My Next Guest Needs No Introduction with David Letterman will feature guests handpicked by Dave himself, and he won’t be restricted to celebrities who are only there to plug some project. His very first guest will be former President Barack Obama, while future episodes will feature chats with Tina Fey, Jay-Z, Malala Yousafzai, Howard Stern, and George Clooney.
All that info comes from the new trailer for My Next Guest Needs No Introduction with David Letterman, which also reveals the show’s upcoming premiere date as January 12th. You can check out the trailer below and watch for the show on Netflix a week from today.
