Former “Late Show” host David Letterman is scheduled to travel to India to film a part in a documentary series that analyzes climate change for the National Geographic Channel, according to a report in Variety on Thursday.

Letterman is expected to go to India in 2016 to see how the nation is attempting to bring solar power to its residents for the series, “Years of Living Dangerously” — slated to be broadcast on the National Geographic Channel, according to the report.

The series, in its second season, is also scheduled to feature celebrities such as actor Jack Black, former California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger (R), and filmmaker James Cameron, according to the publication.

Letterman declined to comment to Variety, but producers of the series said that it would be his first time in India, according to the report.

“You could just tell. Whenever they would have a climate discussion, he would really kind of perk up,” said Joel Bach, one of the series’ producers, as quoted by Variety. “And it turns out he does, he cares about it a lot. He’s definitely invested in this issue.”

The National Geographic cable channel is overseen by the National Geographic Society and 21st Century Fox. The partnership recently expanded to include the National Geographic magazine, which had been a non-profit publication since its founding in 1888.
