James Corden, the actor and comedian, has made an agreement with SiriusXM to produce a fresh audio interview series. This decision was made after his departure from CBS’s The Late Late Show in April, in order to prioritize spending time with his spouse and kids.
According to a spokesperson, the podcast aims to share the untold stories of popular public figures.
Corden rose to fame in the United States as the host of a popular late night talk show where he would interview famous guests while driving in a car and singing with them. This segment, known as Carpool Karaoke, gained a lot of attention and success, despite Corden’s previous success on the BBC sitcom Gavin & Stacey and in Hollywood films like Peter Rabbit and Cats.
His latest audio program, This Life of Mine, will exclusively be accessible to SiriusXM subscribers, a US company that offers satellite and internet radio services.
The highly anticipated show is set to debut in the beginning of the upcoming year and will showcase engaging conversations with some of the most prominent celebrities. They will delve into topics such as the individuals, locations, experiences, and recollections that have shaped their identities.
Similar to the format of Desert Island Discs, the guests will engage in conversation with Corden, discussing their top music, movies, and literature choices. They will also share wisdom and reveal previously unknown anecdotes about their experiences.
In a statement, Corden expressed his excitement about joining SiriusXM and having the opportunity to have meaningful discussions with people whose work and talent he deeply admires.
Corden had a recent interview with Adele on The Late Late Show in April during their Carpool Karaoke segment. Their first Carpool Karaoke interview in 2016 gained widespread attention, reaching over 260 million views.
In 2022, Corden acknowledged that he had behaved rudely during an altercation at a restaurant in New York, resulting in his banishment from the establishment.
According to Keith McNally, the proprietor of Balthazar restaurant, James Corden exhibited rude behavior towards the staff on two separate occasions during his meals there.
Corden stated in the past: “I made a disrespectful and inappropriate remark, and I regret it.”
At a later time in the same year, he informed the Guardian that he intended to depart from The Late Late Show. He stated, “When I first accepted the job, I knew that I wouldn’t be sitting there 20 years from now saying, ‘Stay tuned everyone, we’ll be right back.’ To be truthful, I thought it would be cancelled within six months.”
