James Corden and his producer Ben Winston are on a roll with spin-offs from The Late Late Show. The TBS Network has ordered 17 full episodes of Drop The Mic, based on the Corden mini-rap-battles on the chat show. Corden won't feature in the new celebrity series, but is billed as executive producer alongside Winston.
And Apple have bought a 16-episode series based on the runaway success of Corden's Carpool Karoake videos. Corden's fee for the Late Late Show has increased twice since it's slightly tentative start with the US viewing public, and in tv ratings he's still some way behind Jimmy Fallon, Stephen Colbert and Jimmy Kimmel. Corden is committed to the States til 2020 - might that change ?
