David Letterman returns next week with Obama as his first Netflix guest

Some celebrities retire and you never hear from them again; recent examples include Sean Connery and Gene Hackman.

Obama's first interview since leaving office was with Prince Harry, who was serving as a guest host on BBC Radio 4's popular "Today" program.

Late night talk show host David Letterman is returning to television next week with an interview of former United States president Barack Obama, streaming giant Netflix announced on January 5.

Letterman quit "The Late Show" in 2015 following a 22 year run. "Jay-Z. #MyNextGuestNeedsNoIntroductionWithDavidLetterman." Actor George Clooney, Nobel peace laureate Malala Yousafzai, actress Tina Fey, shock jock Howard Stern and rap superstar Jay-Z complete the lineup. With a name like that, the show would obviously have to pull some big talent to sit across from the long-time late night host, and they did just that by snagging Barack Obama and Jay-Z.

Jose Mourinho to stay at Manchester United
The Italian was pleased to add Everton midfielder Ross Barkley to his squad, for a fee of around £15million. We will go there to try and play and show no fear. "He has good prospects for Chelsea".

As hinted in the title, Letterman's show is all about high-profile guests. According to The Washington Post, Letterman was paid $2 million for per episode for the six episode deal. "Then I didn't have a show for a long time - and I can't tell you how great it is to be out of the damn house". In each hour-long episode Letterman will have a long-form conversation with the guest across a range of topics. The thing I like about it is that it fits exactly what I want to do and it's with people I'm fond of working with.

Netflix is billing the series as an "event", with new episodes following an unusual pattern and debuting once a month throughout the upcoming year.

The new show is part of Netflix's continuing efforts to produce its own shows.
