For more than 30 years, David Letterman came into viewers' homes every weeknight, first as host of "Late Night," then on "Late Show." But his fans won't have to stay up late to catch his first major project since retiring from the late-night scene -- hosting a Netflix-original talk show. As the title suggests, there won't be little-known celebrities on this show that features in-depth interviews with guests who Letterman finds fascinating. Each episode includes a far-reaching conversation with a single guest. The intimate conversations take place both inside and outside of the studio, and folks who enjoy Letterman's non-interview segments will get some of that. While there's no monologue, there are field pieces that bring Dave to locations that help him express his curiosity and to dig deeper on a specific topic related to that episode's guest.
Dave visits Billie Eilish to discuss inspiration, influences, and imposter syndrome, and manages to work in some go-karting and auto-tuning.
Will Smith recalls his rap origins, the lasting impact of his parents, spiritual explorations, and a fateful night at Quincy Jones' house.
Cardi B and Dave split a chopped cheese in a Bronx bodega and chat hooky parties, hip-hop, parenting, political science, and protesting injustice.
Ryan Reynolds makes pizza for Dave while he discusses his youth in Canada, early days as an actor, life as a father, and a love of Welsh football.
Dave and Kevin Durant go one-on-one in basketball, shuffleboard, and conversation as they cover family, focus, trash-talking, and social media.
Julia Louis-Dreyfus takes Dave fishing and talks about growing up with two families, serving Gumby tea on "SNL" and reality overtaking fiction with "Veep."
