Apple Music orders up 16 episodes of 'Carpool Karaoke' series

Apple Music will be home to the new spinoff from James Corden's late-night show which features celebrities singing in cars.

"Carpool Karaoke," a made-to-go-viral segment from "The Late Late Show with James Corden," is branching out to its own series and will be distributed exclusively by Apple Music.

The series will include 16 episodes and be produced by James Corden, CBS Television Studios, and Ben Winston's production company, Fulwell 73. Corden will not host the series. (Editors' Note: CNET is owned by CBS.)

The format of the show will remain largely the same as the original late-night segments. Each episode will have a celebrity riding in a car and singing along to songs from their personal playlists. The ride-alongs will stop by places that are meaningful to the guests.

"The joy of Carpool is both the intimacy it creates, while seeing the love our passengers have for music," said Winston in a statement. "Where better to showcase that than with Apple Music."

The episodes will be available weekly to Apple Music subscribers in more than 100 countries. No information about a host or premiere date has been released.

Despite the full show, CBS has confirmed that "Carpool Karaoke" will indeed "continue as a recurring segment on 'The Late Late Show with James Corden.'"

So far, "Carpool Karaoke" has proved to be very popular among online audiences. Its highest-ranking segment is with English singer and songwriter Adele, which garnered 119 million views in six months. Last week, first lady Michelle Obama joined Corden to drive by the Oval Office and belt out Beyonce's "Single Ladies."

Apple didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.
