Variety Spills More Details On Apple’s Carpool Karaoke

Publicly acquiring the rights to stream James Corden’s hit Carpool Karaoke segment in July of last year, Variety this week spills yet more details on the company’s imminent plan to offer the show as a weekly instalment for Apple Music subscribers.

Reaching an all-new height for online audience figures when the FLOTUS herself –Michelle Obama– decided to take the front seat last summer, (an episode that received a staggering 33+ Million views on YouTube), the future spin-off of the hit U.S segment will see it expand to a full television series.

Up until now, it has been largely unclear who would host the new version of the show. However, according to new details revealed by Variety this week, Apple’s Carpool Karaoke series may be set to take on a different celebrity host – each week.

Co-produced by Eric Pankowski, Ben Winston alongside Corden himself, the Gavin and Stacey actor come U.S late-night talkshow host had this to say on Apple’s incoming version of the online viral hit:

“We’re really excited about the pairings we’re putting together. […] Those pairings include more traditional musical choices like John Legend and Alicia Keys and Seth MacFarlane and Ariana Grande, but also more outside-the-box choices like Billy Eichner in the passenger seat, surrounded by the band Metallica, or former NFL star and talk show host Michael Strahan and NASCAR driver Jeff Gordon.”

Apple’s version of Carpool Karaoke is yet to receive an air date, although the online series -to be available exclusively to Apple Music subscribers- is expected to drop, later this year.
