Julian Assange


The WikiLeaks founder's interviews will air on an English-language Russian TV network that has been accused of spreading anti-U.S. propaganda.

After making a controversy with his WikiLeaks, Julian Assange is launching a career in television. The founder of the secret-spilling site has announced that he will host a talk show which is set to air on RT, an English-language Russian TV network.

The series will consist of 10 half-hour episodes in which Assange will conduct interviews with "key political players, thinkers and revolutionaries from around the world." Further details on the show's content and guests are still kept under wrap for now.

In a statement released by RT, Assange said he sees the show as "an exciting opportunity to discuss the vision of my guests in a new style of show that examines their philosophies and struggles in a deeper and clearer way than has been done before."

The interviews will be filmed at a mansion in the British countryside, where the 40-year-old internet activist has been living under house arrest since 2010. He is currently fighting extradition to Sweden on allegations of rape and molestation.

Assange's talk show is scheduled to air in March. RT, which was previously known as Russia Today, was founded by the Kremlin in 2005 and has been criticized for allegedly airing pro-Putin and anti-U.S. propaganda.
