James Corden Apple deal
When Apple Music started looking around for material for its big push into original content, it immediately went to Corden.
In 2016, Apple Music reached a deal that licensed the rights to an adaption of Carpool Karaoke for distribution under their banner. Corden is credited as the creator of the adaptation, and he also serves as the executive producer. Unlike the segment of The Late Late Show, Apple’s Carpool Karaoke features a different host for each episode – although the premise is identical.
“I honestly can’t remember who went to who,” says Eddy Cue, Apple’s senior vice president of internet software and services. “But we had worked with James before on some other things. He’d done a TV ad for Apple, and we’d done some [sponsorships] on his show. He did a ‘Carpool Karaoke’ with Tim Cook [for the opening of Apple’s 2016 World Wide Developers Conference]. So it felt like a perfect fit. After all, ‘Carpool’ is a show about music, and we’re Apple Music.”
James Corden TBS deal
Corden says that selling cable network TBS on a series version of “Drop the Mic,” another Late Late Show skit in which Corden and a celebrity guest rap insults at each other, couldn’t have been easier. “We went in and said, ‘Here are some “Drop the Mic” clips, and here are the numbers. Some 19 million people watched this clip. This clip was watched by 12 million. Eight million watched this one.’ And TBS went, ‘Done. No pilot. 20 episodes.’ ”
“The internet is an instant focus group,” says Michael Bloom, senior vice president of unscripted series at TBS, who was at that meeting. “It wasn’t a hard call.”

Although he was born in Hillingdon, London, Corden grew up in the village of Hazelmere. His mother was a social worker, and his father was a musician who later sold bibles.
James Corden’s artistic talents were soon recognized, and by the age of 18 he was booking one-liners in movies like Martin Guerre. In his early 20s, Corden explored opportunities as a TV reporter while appearing in television series such as Boyz Unlimited, Teachers, Hollyoaks, Little Britain, and more.

James Corden Career
James Corden career started out with roles on British shows like Fat Friends and Teachers, but quickly branched into meatier parts in serious films (Mike Leigh’s 2002 drama All or Nothing) and gigs in a handful of stage productions (including 2004’s History Boys).
He became best known for comedy, having co-created and costarred in Gavin & Stacey, one of the most popular sitcoms in British TV history (more than 14 million people—about a quarter of the U.K.’s population—watched the 2010 finale).
In 2011, he filmed a hugely popular guest spot for U.K. Comic Relief that involved him belting out “I’m Your Man” with George Michael as they drove around London. (It was the very first carpool karaoke, although it wasn’t called that yet.)
Corden was also about to have his first major part in a big American blockbuster, costarring with Meryl Streep in 2014’s fractured fairy tale Into the Woods.
Around that time, CBS president and CEO Leslie Moonves ‘discovered’ Corden -of whom he had enver heard of before, after he caught him playing a beleaguered servant in a Broadway romp called One Man, Two Guvnors, a role that the Buckinghamshire-born Corden originated on the London stage and that ended up winning him a Tony. The CBS executive was so overwhelmed by the actor’s performance he went home and looked him up on IMDb.
“I knew I wanted to be in business with this guy,” Moonves says. “He could sing, he could dance, he could do comedy, he could act. The fact that most Americans had no idea who he was just made him more exciting to me.”
That’s how Corden ended up with the 12:30 a.m. slot previously held by Craig Ferguson.

Favorite Quotes from James Corden
“No one could have predicted on day one of the rehearsals, that a year and a half later we would have shot a film and all be living in New York. It was surreal.”
“On stage, you have to have incredible confidence, or you would stop doing it. But I don’t think I will ever get to the point where I go, ‘I know exactly what I am doing,’ and I don’t think I want to.”
“Nobody tells you when success comes around; in its transient way, you’re just working and exhausted all the time. Sometimes I think I’m just sleeping in the back of cars, d’you know what I mean?”
Lessons learned from James Corden
James Corden has shared what it works for him in order to stablish the Zen order of his work-life philosophy:
“I try to carve out six or seven minutes of silence twice a day, which is where this thing comes in handy,” he says, picking up a little black sleep mask, the kind airlines give away in first class. “Some people would call it meditating. But I don’t do breathing exercises. I don’t ‘go’ anywhere in particular. I just do this”—he slips on the mask for a few seconds and assumes a blissfully blank expression—”and then when I’m done, it’s like, restart!”
He has also talked about his day job and how he tries to balance everything saying, sharing interesting insights:
“Talk-show host could be the easiest job in the world, if you wanted it to be,” “Monologue, desk bit, chat with a comedian, good night, and you’re done. But that’s not the sort of show I want to do. And what helps is doing all this other stuff. I know that if I didn’t seek out and do things outside of this show, I’d lose my creative mojo. And I don’t want that to happen. But it is exhausting. What I’ve come to realize is that you just have to try to be present wherever you are. You can’t think about tomorrow or next week or even this afternoon. You just have to be the best version of yourself right now. Now, keep in mind, I’m saying this as someone who gets it wrong 25 times a day. I’m just saying this is what I strive for. It’s the only way I know to have success.”
