David Letterman's Netflix show premieres this month with guest Barack Obama

Late night talk show host David Letterman is returning to television next week with an interview of former U.S. president Barack Obama, streaming giant Netflix announced Friday.

The company's shares rose as much as two per cent to a record of $209.72. The first episode will stream on Friday, Jan. 12, and a new episode will be made available each subsequent month.

Letterman's Late Night With David Letterman ran on NBC from 1982 to 1993.

David Letterman's anticipated return date to television is set.

Here's a synopsis: Each 60-minute episode of My Next Guest is centered around one extraordinary figure whom Dave finds fascinating.

Letterman's revival will certainly ride a viewership boost from Obama's first talk show appearance since he vacated office. Late-night legend David Letterman, however, is going about it a little differently. Other such individuals include George Clooney, Malala Yousafzai, Jay-Z, Tina Fey, and Howard Stern, will be interviewed both inside and outside of the typical studio setting.

Netfix and Letterman announced plans for the new show back in August, with RadicalMedia and Letterman's Worldwide Pants producing. Per Netflix, the host will also explore various topics on his own and feature in-the-field segments that express his curiosity and humor.

Obama is just the beginning for the Netflix-Letterman collaboration.
