The Kremlin's English-language television station has revealed that it will be broadcasting WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange's new television show.

WikiLeaks announced earlier this week that Assange was hosting a talk show to begin airing in March, but there was no word on who would carry the show or how it would be produced.

RT television announced Wednesday from Moscow that it would broadcast the show, a series of 10 interviews with what it described as "key political players, thinkers and revolutionaries — figures who in the author's opinion will be shaping the political agenda of tomorrow."

The RT statement said Assange is filming the series from the location of his house arrest in Britain.

RT, which also broadcasts in Spanish and Arabic on its cable networks, often takes a critical stance on U.S. policy.
