Netflix announced Tuesday morning David Letterman is going back to work. The streaming service signed the former late night host to a six-episode series.
“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,” said Letterman.
The yet-to-be-named show will focus on in-depth conversations with extraordinary people, and in-the-field segments expressing his curiosity and humor. In each hour-long episode, Letterman will conduct a long-form conversation with a singular guest – and will also explore topics on his own, away from the studio.
Letterman’s last episode of ‘The Late Show’ aired on May 20, 2015, to an audience of 13.76 million people.
