LOS ANGELES, June 20 (UPI) -- The first guests on Keith Olbermann's new U.S. talk show will be filmmaker Michael Moore and columnist Markos Moulitsas, The Hollywood Reporter said.

"Countdown with Keith Olbermann" is to make its debut Monday night on Current TV.

In an ad promoting the show on the cable network, Olbermann promised he will say what he wants without fear of getting in trouble with his bosses.

"For every story there is a flurry of heavily biased, corporate-sponsored spin that can distract even the most engaged viewer," Olbermann said. "And every day we're all left with a bit less clarity … until now."

Olbermann's decision to join Current TV was announced in February. In addition to executive-producing and serving as host of the show, Olbermann was appointed Current's chief news officer.

He left MSNBC in January after eight years, following stormy interactions with management, including a suspension for contributing to political candidates. His MSNBC show also was called "Countdown with Keith Olbermann."
