David Letterman’s new gig? A show on global warming
Stephen Colbert is great, sure, but we were all sad to see David Letterman leave late-night TV this spring. Fortunately, he’s not gone forever: The National Geographic Channel announced yesterday that Letterman will appear as a special correspondent on the second season of Years of Living Dangerously, the Emmy-winning documentary series about climate change.
From the LA Times:
The upcoming season of the series will focus on “solutions that individuals, communities, companies and even governments can use to address worldwide climate change,” said [National Geographic Channels CEO Courtney] Bach in a statement …
Other Hollywood names attached to Season 2 include Joshua Jackson (“The Affair”), Jack Black (“The Brink”), Ty Burrell (“Modern Family”) and Cecily Strong (“Saturday Night Live”).
The season will air next October, just before the presidential election.
