James Corden may be following in the footsteps of fellow late night show host Jimmy Fallon who produced a stand-alone show for his "Lip Sync Battle" on SpikeTV. Corden and "The Late Late Show with James Corden" Executive Producer Ben Winston are reportedly offering the late night show's musical bit, "Carpool Karaoke," as a stand-alone series to interested networks.
Corden's humorous signature segment features him with celebrities as they sing their hearts out while driving around the city. One of the most watched "Carpool Karaoke" segments featured Adele who sang with Corden to her hit songs and even rapped to Nicki Minaj's "Monster." Watch the video below if you are not too aware of the awesome segment.
"All you're searching for when you're coming up a new show is: What are the bits that will define our show? [...] For us to have shot one before we were on the air is incredibly great for us. [Carpool's quick success] is not lost on us," Corden said in an interview.
The still untitled project will most likely not be hosted by James Corden himself, just the same was as "Lip Sync Battle" is not hosted by Fallon. It is believed that a host will be chosen once the round of presentations - and a possible bidding war- is over and a network is attached to the project.
CBS Television Studios and the Fulwell 73 production company owned by Winston will serve as producers for the production and Corden may appear in a few episodes.
"The trickier thing about that is Lip Sync Battle can exist without Jimmy Fallon... but Carpool Karaoke can't really exist without James Corden," Executive Producer Rob Crabbe said.
Crabbe does have a point since Corden is usually doing a casual interview in between songs so whichever network wins the bidding war may just have to find a host who can also chat smoothly with guests and belt out different song genres with them as well.
A similar project is expected to launch in Spike TV titled "Caraoke Showdown" hosted by Craig Robinson, which mashed together the concept of "Lip Sync Battle" and "Carpool Karaoke."
