Wikileaks founder Julian Assange will be hosting a series of TV specials, the website announced through a press release authorized by Assange.  

The controversial figure will be interviewing "key political players, thinkers and revolutionaries from around the world," a press release stated.

The theme has been set as 'The world of tomorrow.'

The released describes Assange as "both a pioneer for a more just world and a victim of political repression," claiming that his "unique" position allowed him to produce fruitful debates on "how to go forward."

“Through this series I will explore the possibilities for our future, in conversations with those who are shaping it," Assange said.  "Are we heading towards utopia or dystopia, and how we can set our paths? This is 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 series are scheduled for March and will comprise ten half-hour episodes.

Julian Assange is set to appeal against extradition from Britain to Sweden over rape allegations and a hearing will start Feb. 1. He was arrested last December on a European arrest warrant issued by Sweden after allegations by two women of sexual assault and rape.
