Get ready for a British invasion on you late night line-up when “The Late Late Show with James Corden” debuts on CBS on Monday, March 9, 2015 at 12:37AM ET/PT.
News of the new late night series was announced Tuesday.
“The Late Late Show with James Corden” will tape at CBS Television City in Los Angeles and will have multi-talented producer, director and writer Ben Winston as its executive producer.
“We’re excited to begin CBS’s next chapter after midnight and introduce James’ wide range of performance talents and fearless creative instincts to American television viewers,” said Nina Tassler, Chairman, CBS Entertainment. “He and Ben have been friends for a long time and partnered together on a variety of successful projects. They are a creatively dynamic and very energetic host/producer combination.”
Winston has a history of success, winning accolades for his work in television, movies, music videos and commercials. He is currently an executive producer on the hit UK version of “The X Factor.”
And little known fact: Winston and Corden are close friends since age 17.
Late night television will never be the same after these two team up.
Corden will be replacing Craig Ferguson, the critically acclaimed host of the CBS late night series for the past 10 years who announced his resignation from the show in early 2014.
