James Corden's 'Late Late Show' Gets U.K. Home at Sky
The show will be broadcast on the pay-TV network a day after airing in the U.S.
James Corden may have been a household name in the U.K. long before he made the big time with The Late Late Show, but his home crowd will finally get to see what all the U.S. fuss is about without having to trouble YouTube.
Pay TV network Sky and CBS Studios International has signed a deal to bring the show exclusively to Sky customers in the U.K. and Ireland. Starting July 19, The Late Late Show will be aired one day after its U.S. broadcast.
In addition, The Late Late Show Carpool Karaoke Primetime Special, featuring Corden's "favorite moments" from his first year in late-night TV, together with highlights from his hugely popular "Carpool Karaoke" segment, will be broadcast exclusive on Sky's Sky 1 channel.
"The Late Late Show has become a global cultural phenomenon, and the U.K. audience has delighted in James' runaway stateside success," said Gary Davey, managing director, content for Sky. "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."
