Letterman signs on for new Netflix talk show


After two years of relative silence, David Letterman wants to talk.

The 70-year-old late-night host is returning to TV with a new show for Netflix. Letterman has signed on for six episodes of the yet-to-be named series, which will feature hour-long interviews with a guest and "segments in which he explores the wider world," reports the New York Times.

Letterman says one guest is already confirmed, though he declined to reveal more details. His booking strategy: "Write down a list of people that you know you're not going to be able to talk to, and those are the people that I want to try to get to talk to."

No word yet on when the new show will premiere on Netflix. Letterman retired in 2015, ending a 33-year run on late-night TV at CBS (1993-2005) and NBC (1982-1993).
