David Letterman Is Heading to India for National Geographic’s Climate Change Series, ‘Years of Living Dangerously’


Well, that didn’t take long! Variety reports that four months after signing off The Late Show, David Letterman will travel to India to lend his voice to discussions about climate change on the second season of National Geographic’s docu-series, Years of Living Dangerously . The second season will focus on India’s attempt to make solar power accessible to the country’s swelling population of over a billion people.

Letterman was approached by David Gelber and Joel Bach, the producers of the series, after they noticed how invested he seemed when the subject of climate change was brought up during The Late Show interviews. “Whenever they would have a climate discussion, he would really kind of perk up,” said Bach.

A varied cast of actors and directors, including Jack Black, Ty Burrell, James Cameron, Joshua Jackson, Aasif Mandvi, Olivia Munn, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Ian Somerhalder, and Cecily Strong will also join Letterman as correspondents.

The second season of Years of Living Dangerously will premiere in 2016 on the National Geographic Channel.
