The Late Late Show with James Corden Set for U.K. & Ireland


AMSTERDAM/LONDON: A new pact between Sky and CBS Studios International will bring The Late Late Show with James Corden to audiences in the U.K. and Ireland.

Starting July 19, Sky TV and NOW TV entertainment pass customers can watch full episodes of the late-night talk show on demand, one day after its broadcast in the U.S. Additionally, Sky 1 will exclusively broadcast The Late Late Show Carpool Karaoke Primetime Special, featuring highlights from “Carpool Karaoke” segments, on July 19.

Corden is already a familiar face to Sky viewers as the host of Sky 1’s entertainment show A League of Their Own, which he has led since 2010.

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

Armando Nuñez, the president and CEO of CBS Global Distribution Group, said: “In just over a year, James has made a very big mark on U.S. late-night television with a critically acclaimed show that features the biggest names in entertainment and unique segments that quickly become digital sensations. We’re excited that U.K. audiences will get to experience all the energy and excitement of the series with our terrific partners at Sky.”
