Wikileaks founder Julian Assange may be under house arrest in the UK, but he's not sitting idle.
Assange will host his own talk show, on Russia's state-funded English-language channel. The first episode will air in March, and is expected to span 10 episodes. Assange is expected a court a week after the show premieres.
The show will "draw together controversial voices from across the political spectrum - iconoclasts, visionaries and power insiders - each to offer a window on the world tomorrow," Wikileaks said in a statement.
Assange has been under house arrest for more than 400 days. He's waiting to learn if the courts will extradite him to Sweden, where he faces sexual assault charges.
He could also be sent to the U.S. if he's charged in connection to secret diplomatic cables he published on Wikileaks.
