WikiLeaks remained tightlipped on the identity of Assange’s interviewee in the first of the 12-episode weekly series entitled The World Tomorrow. It has promised ‘an eclectic range of guests, who are stamping their mark on the future: politicians, revolutionaries, intellectuals, artists and visionaries’.
Assange said the show would have a “frank and irreverent tone”. “My own work with WikiLeaks hasn’t exactly made my life easier,” the 40-year-old Australian former hacker said in a statement, “but it has given us a platform to broadcast world-shifting ideas.”
The show is being produced by Quick Roll Productions, a company established by Assange. The main production partner is the little-known Dartmouth Films, a British producer of independent films. WikiLeaks said Russia Today was one of its broadcast licensees for the show but it has not been involved in the production process.
