NEW YORK (AP/Meredith) - David Letterman, who said goodbye to his long-running talk show nearly three years ago, is saying hello to TV again with a new show for Netflix.
Netflix released a trailer for a six-episode series, "My Next Guest Needs No Introduction" in which Letterman combines two primary interests: in-depth conversations and in-the-field segments sparked by his curiosity and humor. In each hour-long episode, Letterman conducts a long-form conversation with a single guest and explore topics of his own outside the studio.
In 33 years on late-night television, Letterman hosted 6,028 episodes of NBC's "Late Night" and CBS' "Late Show," and is the longest-running late-night broadcaster in American history. He has won 10 Emmys and two Peabody awards. He stepped down from the "Late Show" in May 2015.
Letterman said he feels "excited and lucky to be working on this project for Netflix." He added these words of wisdom: "If you retire to spend more time with your family, check with your family first."
