James Corden is trying something new with his “Late Late Show,” and has scheduled a YouTube-focused episode on which he’ll interview some of the platform’s biggest stars.
The episode will air on Aug. 21, marking the first late-night talk show to film an entire episode inside YouTube’s L.A. space.
“We are so excited to film ‘The Late Late Show’ from YouTube Space LA, home to some of the most innovative and popular creators,” said Ben Winston, executive producer of the show. “YouTube has become a big part of the late-night television experience, and we are delighted to celebrate their 10-year anniversary this way. The show will be packed full of surprises, games and music — all with a YouTube twist.”
Corden has been trying to shake up the late-night format since his show’s debut in March. For example, in his seventh episode, he took the audience out of the studio and filmed an entire episode at a stranger’s house.
“The Late Late Show’s” YouTube channel itself has grown significantly since its debut, now claiming more than 850,000 subscribers. With nearly 200 million views across all videos, some of Corden’s biggest hits include “Justin Bieber Carpool Karaoke” and “James Corden and Tom Hanks Act Out Tom’s Filmography.”
