‘Carpool Karaoke’ Spinoff In The Works
One of my favorite segments from “The Late Late Show with James Corden” is being shopped as a stand-alone series by CBS.
“Carpool Karaoke” will be a 30 or 60 minute show featuring a singer or celebrity in a car… singing karaoke.
International and domestic versions of the show are reported to be in the works.
A deal for a domestic version of the show is said to be close. “Late Late Show” executive producer Ben Winston and Corden began shopping the series as a half hour version back in March, hitting the major cablers and SVOD players. Corden and Winston would serve as exec producers, though Corden would not host.
“Ever since ‘Carpool Karaoke’ has aired as part of ‘The Late Late Show with James Corden,’ the requests for the format have been overwhelming,” said Paul Gilbert, CBS Studios International’s SVP of International Formats. “International broadcasters can now leverage ‘Carpool Karaoke’s’ huge digital and broadcast success for their own local viewers.”
So excited for this. This is on par with the “Lip Sync Battle” on Spike and should have a very good shelf life.
