David Letterman has a six-episode series coming to Netflix, and his first guest will be our president for life—the man, the myth, the legend: former President Barack Obama.

According to the Daily Beast, this will be the first talk show appearance for the last decent president America will ever have since he turned over the White House keys to the mud-trucking administration currently at the helm.


My Next Guest Needs No Introduction With David Letterman is set to premiere on Friday, Jan. 12, with the one-hour Obama interview. Letterman’s other guests during the series will be Jay-Z, George Clooney, Malala Yousafzai, Tina Fey and Howard Stern.

“According to Netflix, the interviews will ‘take place both inside and outside a studio setting’ and additional field segments ‘will bring Dave to locations far and wide, expressing his curiosity and desire to dig deeper on a specific topic related to the iconic guest featured in the episode,’” the Daily Beast reports.

Letterman, formerly the host of CBS’ Late Show, retired from his network gig in 2015.
