MOSCOW, Jan. 25, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- RT will launch an exclusive interview series by Wikileaks founder Julian Assange called "The World Tomorrow" in March 2012.

Host and show author, Julian Assange, will engage with ten key political players, thinkers and revolutionaries – figures who in the author's opinion will be shaping the political agenda of tomorrow.

Julian Assange is filming the series from the location of his house arrest where he has been confined, with no charge, for 413 days. Filming commences a week before his Supreme Court hearing.

"Upheavals and revolutions in the Middle East have commenced an era of real political change that is still unfolding. Wikileaks, as the world's boldest publisher, has been at the frontline of this global movement for change, and our project is designed to catalyze the global discussion about the world of tomorrow," said Assange. "Are we heading towards utopia, or dystopia and how we can set our paths? Through this series I will explore the possibilities for our future in conversations with those who are shaping it".

RT editor-in-chief Margarita Simonyan said, "We're proud to host Julian Assange's new project. RT has rallied a global audience of open-minded people who don't take things around them for granted. Our viewers are open to the discussions that will be presented at Julians' show on our channel".
