Neil deGrasse Tyson is getting his own late night talk show based on his StarTalk podcast and it’s set to premiere on April 20th. The show is being produced by National Geographic and will be similar to the podcast with Tyson hosting assorted guests.
On that note, there’s an impressive lineup so far that includes former US president Jimmy Carter, biologist Richard Dawkins, Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield, Norman Lear, Christopher Nolan, and Star Trek actor George Takei. Bill Nye will also have a regular one-minute segment on the show. Taping will be at the American Museum of Natural History’s Hayden Planetarium in New York City in front of a live studio audience.
The first episode will be followed by a one-hour special titled Hubble’s Cosmic Journey so it will be an extra science-y night!
