The new TBS series, yet another musical spin-off of one of Corden’s “Late Late Show” bits, pits celebrities against one another in no-holds-barred rap battles in front of a live studio audience and hosts Method Man and Haley Baldwin.
The stars team up with the show’s writers and rappers to pen their verses, and the executive producers revealed who they’d most like to write for at the Television Critics Association press tour on Thursday.
“I’d like to see Judi Dench vs. Maggie Smith,” added Corden. “Dame on Dame, saying everything they’ve dreamt of saying for the last 30 years.”
“It’s our Biggie and Tupac … it only ends with murder,” Karp wryly quipped.
The 16-episode series will premiere in the fall. Guests on the first season include Gina Rodriguez, Rob Gronkowski, Randall Park, James Van Der Beek and Vanessa Hudgens.
