David Letterman is only two years into retirement, and he’s already getting antsy, because he’s hosting a new talk show for Netflix!
There’s no title yet, but it sounds different from what he did on “The Late Show”. It’ll be an hour-long, pre-taped show, where each episode will focus on ONE topic. Netflix says it’ll feature, quote, “in-depth conversations with extraordinary people, and in-the-field segments expressing his curiosity and humor.”
There’s no guest list yet but Letterman says he’d like to interview President Trump or Pope Francis. He does have one guest booked, but he won’t say who it is.
For now, Dave is only doing six episodes, and they’ll premiere sometime next year. Obviously, that could change if the show’s a hit. Dave jokes, quote, “I feel excited and lucky to be working on this project for Netflix. Here’s what I have learned: If you retire to spend more time with your family, check with your family first. Thanks for watching, drive safely.”
He didn’t say whether or not he’s keeping his big, Santa-like retirement beard.
