James Corden’s ‘Late Late Show’ Heads to Sky in U.K. and Ireland

LONDON — Brit comedian James Corden’s U.S. hit series “The Late Late Show” is set to be made available on his home turf for the first time.

CBS Studios International and pan-European pay-TV giant Sky have inked a deal for his weeknight talk show “The Late Late Show with James Corden” to air exclusively to Sky customers in the U.K. and Ireland from July 19. The show will be aired one day after its U.S. broadcast.

In addition, Sky1 will exclusively broadcast “The Late Late Show Carpool Karaoke Primetime Special” on July 19, featuring Corden’s favorite moments from his first year in the late night slot, including karaoke segments with Adele, Jennifer Lopez and Mariah Carey.

Since the show unspooled in the U.S. in March 2015, Corden’s late show has become known for generating buzzworthy viral videos, seeing the program’s YouTube channel surpass 1 billion views.

“‘The Late Late Show’ has become a global cultural phenomenon and the U.K. and Ireland audience has delighted in James’ runaway stateside success,” said Sky Content managing director Gary Davey. “There is a huge appetite from U.K. and Irish fans to enjoy the antics of ‘The Late Late Show’ firsthand and we are thrilled to exclusively bring the show direct to our customers.
