(RNN) – The infamous WikiLeaks announced through its Twitter handle Friday that a new Julian Assange-centered TV show will air Tuesday, April 17.
The show, titled The World Tomorrow, features 12 episodes produced by Quick Roll Productions, a company created by Assange, which will air on the international network RT.
RT, formerly known as Russia Today, is headquartered out of Moscow with a bureau in Washington.
When the network began in 2005, the Columbia Journalism Reviewstated it "was conceived as a soft-power tool to improve Russia's image abroad."
According to RT's website, the show will feature Assange in conversation with "iconoclasts, visionaries and power insiders."
"Being under house arrest for so long, it's nice to have an occasional visitor and to learn more about the world. And given that the conversations we were having are quite interesting, why not film them and show other people what was going on," Assange told RT.
The website also claims that the first episode of the series will feature a "notorious guest whose identity is still under wraps."
According to RT's website, the network is available on cable networks and on Dish Network, mainly in large U.S. cities.
Assange, an Australian national, first made headlines after he founded WikiLeaks in 2006. The organization is known worldwide for leaking private government documents, including more than 250,000 diplomatic cables and nearly 400,000 classified documents pertaining to the war in Afghanistan.
Assange is facing extradition from England to Sweden for questioning regarding allegations of sex crimes dating back to August 2010.
According to the WikiLeaks release, he "has been under house arrest, without charge, for 492 days. This follows on from his imprisonment in solitary confinement, also without charge, in December 2010."
The statement reveals that Assange is currently residing at a supporter's home in the English countryside, as dictated by his bail conditions. He must also wear an electronic ankle monitor at all times.
WikiLeaks claims that despite an "unlawful financial blockade by a cartel made up of VISA, Mastercard, Bank of America, Western Union and Paypal," it is continuing normal operations to the best of its abilities.
