The show will be similar to Corden’s viral videos and features celebrities riding in cars belting out their favorite tunes. Set to James Brown’s “Get Up Off That Thing,” the trailer shows that not all the singing and dancing happens inside the car.
The roster of celebrities expected to get behind the driver’s seat and sing their favorite tunes includes such actors, singers, and athletes as Will Smith, Shaquille O’Neal, Seth MacFarlane, Billy Eichner, Metallica, Alicia Keys, John Legend, Ariana Grande, Chelsea Handler, Blake Shelton, Michael Strahan, Jeff Gordon, John Cena, Maisie Williams, Sophie Turner and others. Corden will appear in a couple episodes including the one with Smith.
Carpool Karaoke: The Series will launch on Apple Music August 8. It will be available to subscribers of Apple Music, Apple’s music subscription service regularly priced at $9.99 per month.
The series is co-produced by CBS Television Studios and Fulwell 73. Corden and Ben Winston serve as co-creators and executive producers along with executive producer and showrunner Eric Pankowski.
