WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange's TV show "The World Tomorrow" will premiere Tuesday, April 17, WikiLeaks said via TwitLonger on Friday.
The 12-episode series will feature Assange, who's currently under house arrest in the English countryside, interviewing subjects "who are stamping their mark on the future: politicians, revolutionaries, intellectuals, artists and visionaries," according to WikiLeaks. "The World Tomorrow" will be broadcast by RT (formerly Russia Today), a global, multi-lingual news network.
The show, which was announced in January, was originally scheduled to premiere in mid-March.
According to Assange, the goal of "The World Tomorrow" is “to capture and present some of this revolutionary spirit to a global audience. My own work with WikiLeaks hasn't exactly made my life easier, but it has given us a platform to broadcast world-shifting ideas.”
Assange, who also serves Editor-in-Chief of WikiLeaks, has been both reviled and hailed for his disclosure of government secrets, and also made headlines with allegations of sexual misconduct.
The internet whistle-blower promised that "The World Tomorrow" will boast a "frank and irreverent tone." The show's original music is composed by "Paper Planes" singer M.I.A. -- who's been known to exhibit some frank and irreverent behavior herself.
