"Two years after signing off CBS' The Late Show, David Letterman is returning to the small screen," The Hollywood Reporter writes:
- "The longest-serving host in U.S. late-night TV history is set to topline a new talk show for Netflix. The untitled six-episode series will premiere in 2018."
- "[E]ach hourlong episode of the Netflix series will be prerecorded and feature Letterman conducting longform conversations with a singular guest as well as exploring topics on his own — outside of the studio."
- From Letterman's statement: "If you retire to spend more time with your family, check with your family first."
