CBS News reports that the former talk show host who’s now sporting his infamous beard is slated to host a 6-episode series for Netflix entitled “My Next Guest Needs No Introduction” beginning Friday January 12th. The show will focus on a single guest, along with long-format interview and field segments.

David said in a statement:

I feel excited and lucky to be working on this project for Netflix. Here's what I have learned: If you retire to spend more time with your family, check with your family first. Thanks for watching, drive safely.

His first guest is definitely a heavy hitter - none other than former President Barack Obama. Other guests include Jay-Z, George Clooney, and Howard Stern, just to name a few.

Letterman said that he is right where he wants to be right now at this point in his life.  Also, if you were wondering he’s keeping the beard forever.
