Carpool Karaoke Adele

Make some room, Lip Sync Battle: Another late-night viral sensation is making the leap to cable.

James Corden and Late Late Show executive producer Ben Winston are shopping a Carpool Karaoke series to networks, based on Corden’s crazy-popular, star-studded segment.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, which first broke the news, Corden is not expected to host the project but will executive-produce and likely make guest appearances. (If you’re unfamiliar with Carpool Karaoke, let this be your introduction to the phenomenon.)
