It is set to debut next year.
“I feel excited and lucky to be working on this project for Netflix,” Letterman said in the press release. “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.”
Letterman left “The Late Show” in 2015.
He had hosted late night programs on NBC and CBS for 33 years.
