After a five-year hiatus, talk show king Lou Bondi is making a comeback on Maltese screens with his take of the Netflix hit show My Next Guest Needs No Introduction, exclusively for Lovin Malta TV.
The show, originally hosted by David Letterman, sees the host interview high-profile guests in a live audience setting. Malta’s version is set at Mediterranean Conference Centre.
Season 1 will feature interviews with Prime Minister Joseph Muscat, Opposition leader Adrian Delia, top criminal lawyer Franco Debono, popstar Ira Losco and reality show breakout star Ben Camille.
Lou Bondi spent 20 years in journalism on the national broadcaster before stopping in 2013 and focusing on a career in media consultancy and events management.
“I haven’t missed journalism too much but I do feel the time is right to create something new for the Maltese public. In this age of social media, audiences want to get to know the people behind the headlines and I think this show is going to deliver more than expected,” Bondi said.
