James Corden’s departure from CBS’ “The Late Late Show” doesn’t equate to an end to his celebrity conversations; he continues these interactions despite being off TV screens.
The distinguished recipient of multiple Emmy and Tony Awards, known for the creation of “Carpool Karaoke,” is preparing to introduce a fresh weekly show scheduled for early 2024 on SiriusXM named “This Life of Mine with James Corden.”
The program will “feature in-depth conversations with the world’s biggest stars, discussing the people, places, moments and memories that made them who they are today,” as stated by the show’s producers.
“James has been a trailblazer in the entertainment business,” remarked Scott Greenstein, president, and chief content officer of SiriusXM, in a statement. “We’re so honored to welcome him to the SiriusXM family as he begins this next phase of his illustrious career and makes his mark in audio.”
SiriusXM is organizing an event in New York on Wednesday to present its latest SiriusXM streaming app along with new programming, live performances, and unexpected appearances by celebrity guests.
Corden described his new show as “a new chapter,” expressing “it’s a dream to have a space to engage in deep conversations with the people whose work and talent I greatly admire.”
He has been honored with 12 Emmy Awards across various roles as a host, writer, producer, and actor. Alongside his Tony Award win, he’s a multi-time BAFTA Award recipient and has received a Golden Globe Award nomination.
Corden, who hosted his self-titled late-night comedy talk show from its debut in 2015, concluded the series in April. The British TV personality discussed his exit in April 2022, describing his departure from the show as “the hardest decision I’ve ever had to make.”
“When I started this journey, it was always going to be just that. It was going to be a journey, an adventure. I never saw it as my final destination,” Corden stated back then. “I never want this show to overstay its welcome in any way. I always want to love making it. And I really think in a year from now that will be a good time to move on and see what else might be out there.”
“Late Show” host Stephen Colbert revealed last week that comedian Taylor Tomlinson will take over Corden’s 12:30 a.m. slot on CBS. The comedian, recognized for her Netflix specials “Quarter-Life Crisis” and “Look at You,” is set to lead the talk show series “After Midnight,” drawing inspiration from the Comedy Central game show “@midnight.”
