Veteran former talk show host David Letterman will return to television on January 12 in a new Netflix show where his first guest will be former US President Barack Obama Netflix said on Friday

David Letterman's first guest on his new Netflix talk show really needs no introduction. The new series marks Letterman's first regular series since leaving his post as host of CBS's The Late Show in May 2015.

On Friday, January 12, My Next Guest Needs No Introduction with David Letterman will debut on Netflix with President Barack Obama as the first guest.

In this image released by CBS, President Barack Obama, left, appears with host David Letterman during a taping of "Late Show with David Letterman", on Monday, May 4, 2015, in NY.

Episodes will each feature one person who Letterman finds fascinating, with interviews both inside and outside a studio setting. He ended a storied 33-year run in late-night TV that began with his 1982-1993 residency on NBC's "Late Night". He will also host Jay-Z, Howard Stern, George Clooney, Tina Fey, and Nobel Prize-winning activist Malala Yousafza.

David Letterman's anticipated return date to television is set.

Obama is just the beginning for the Netflix-Letterman collaboration.
