Through the whistle-blower web site Wikileaks, Julian Assange has got a lot of enemies around the world by revealing top secret documents from various governments.

Now, the founder of WikiLeaks has found a new media channel, he is in fact going to host a TV-series “of in-depth conversations with key political players, thinkers and revolutionaries from around the world”, WikiLeaks writes in a press release.

The theme of the series is quite broad, as Assange with guests together will explore “the world tomorrow” in the program, which currently has no title.

Upheavals and revolutions in the Middle East have commenced an era of political change that is still unfolding. In the West, the deterioration of the rule of law has demonstrated the bankruptcy of once leading political institutions and ideologies. The internet has never been so strong, or so much under attack.

At this pivotal moment there is an awareness of the need to radically rethink the world around us.

According to Assange, this is the reason for bringing this new talk show on the air:

Through this series I will explore the possibilities for our future in conversations with those who are shaping it. 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.

Assange is hich is currently released from custody under conditions of bail in the UK. He is requested extradited to Sweden, where two women have accused him of sexual assault. Prosecutors in Sweden want to question him in this regard, and the  issue is now being treated in the British High Court.

The new TV-series will begin airing in mid-March, in ten weekly half-hour episodes, according to the WikiLeaks founder, but it is unclear which broadcasters or TV networks that has picked up the series.

An other possibility is that Wikileaks choose to send the program on network television.
