Netflix Announces New David Letterman Series

David Letterman makes his return to television on Netflix - Netflix Media Center

Letterman, 70, has mostly been off the screen in the two years since he signed off of CBS' "The Late Show" in May 2015. The yet-to-be-named, six-episode series has Letterman combining two interests for which he is renowned: in-depth conversations with extraordinary people, and in-the-field segments expressing his curiosity and humour.

In the Netflix announcement, he said, "I feel 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". "Thanks for watching, drive safely", Letterman said in a statement, flashing his still-sharp wit. Andy Lau promotes movie post-accident Hong Kong star Andy Lau has made his first public appearance after his filming accident early this year, at a Beijing press conference to promote The Adventurers. Now, though, he seems ready for a comeback.

However, if you're looking for Letterman's classic Top 10 lists or stupid pet tricks, you might be disappointed.

"He was succeeded on The Late Show" by Stephen Colbert who, along with numerous other American and British TV hosts and comedians, has described Letterman as having strongly influenced his comedic style.

The commitment to do six shows for Netflix "feels like exactly what I want at this stage of my life", he told the Times. "I can just talk the ears off people, until they call the police. It's a ideal fit for me".

He told Hollywood trade paper Variety on Tuesday that he has one interview already booked for the first Netflix show but would not reveal the name. It looks like it's joining him for the new show, as well. "I'd like to go back to NY where he was a kid and start there". "The beard has to stay. Children would be frightened".
