Despite his detainment, WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange will debut his television talk show next week, with the program airing on Russia Today and online, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
"For 500 days now I’ve been detained without charge, but that hasn’t stopped us," Assange notes in a promotional video posted on YouTube.
The debut episode will air Tuesday, April 17, with the talk show also being streamed at http://worldtomorrow.wikileaks.org/, according to that website. Twelve episodes have been taped.
The show will feature 12 interviews with an "eclectic range of guests, who are stamping their mark on the future: politicians, revolutionaries, intellectuals, artists and visionaries," according to the show’s website. The release doesn’t identify who will appear on the program.
The show’s music was composed by British-Sri Lankan artist M.I.A., according to the World Tomorrow site.
Assange conducted the interviews in his temporary home in the English countryside, where he is under house arrest.
