Other guests include actor George Clooney, Nobel Prize-winning Pakistani activist Malala Yousafzai, rapper Jay-Z, actress Tina Fey and radio personality Howard Stern.

Former President Barack Obama is set to be late-night legend David Letterman's first guest on his new Netflix series next week, marking 44's return to major talk show scene.

Letterman's Worldwide Pants production company is teaming with RadicalMedia for the series, which Letterman says is a welcome back to the spotlight after his lengthy "Late Show" run.

This screengrab shows a preview of David Letterman (R)'s interview with former United States president Barack Obama which will be shown on Netflix. "In each hour-long episode, Letterman will conduct a long-form conversation with a singular guest-and will also explore topics on his own, away from the studio".

The January 12 premiere will mark the former president's first appearance on a television talk show since leaving office. Barack Obama was recently seen in a sit-down interview with Prince Harry for BBC. In 2016, Letterman toplined a well-received episode of National Geographic Channel's "Years of Living Dangerously" series in which he traveled to India to examine the real-world impact of climate change.

"'My Next Guest' is centered around one extraordinary figure whom Dave finds fascinating", Netflix said in a statement.
