Stroumboulopoulos’ first guests will be rapper Wiz Khalifa, actress Ellen Page and Walking Dead comic book author Robert Kirkman. Viewers can also expect “compelling” interviews with Keanu Reeves, Martin Short, Betty White, Bill Maher, Sharon Stone, author Eckhardt Tolle, and filmmaker Werner Herzog.

The show will tape in front of a live audience in Los Angeles.
