DAVID LETTERMAN will host a new, hour-long talk show for Netflix, where he'll explore deeper topics than he did on "The Late Show". For now, he's only doing six episodes, and they'll premiere sometime next year.
There's no guest list yet . . . but he says he'd like to interview President Trump or Pope Francis. He does have one guest booked, but he won't say who it is.
He didn't say whether or not he's keeping his big, Santa-like retirement beard.
