David Letterman will return to television in his first ongoing series since stepping down as the host of CBS’s “Late Show” in 2015.
Netflix has picked up a new show from Mr. Letterman, the comedian and broadcaster.
This series will run for six episodes next year.
Netflix said in a news release that the show would allow Mr. Letterman to combine “two interests for which he is renowned: in-depth conversations with extraordinary people, and in-the-field segments expressing his curiosity and humor.”
Each hour-long episode will feature an interview between Mr. Letterman and an individual guest.
