WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has finished shooting 12 episodes of “The World Tomorrow,” a TV talk show slated to debut this week on Russia’s RT news network.
According to the whistle-blowing organization, “The World Tomorrow” will create a safe space for individuals who would otherwise be sidelined by the mainstream media.
“Julian Assange has been under house arrest for nearly 500 days. In that time he has been host to a series of clandestine conversations with some of the world’s most controversial people, now due to broadcast worldwide,” read an official WikiLeaks statement posted on YouTube.
“The most anticipated news program of the year, ‘The World Tomorrow’, is a collection of twelve ‘frank and irreverent’ interviews with an eclectic range of politicians, revolutionaries, intellectuals, artists and visionaries.”
The first episode of “The World Tomorrow” will air on RT (and online) this Tuesday at 12:30 GMT, with other networks to follow.
