James Corden's Carpool Karaoke to be standalone show

James Corden's 'Late Late Show' segment Carpool Karaoke could be become a TV series in its own right.

The 37-year-old chat show host has teamed up with executive producer Ben Winston to get the viral phenomenon, which has seen the likes of Justin Bieber, Mariah Carey, Adele, One Direction and Coldplay's Chris Martin hop in his car to perform their songs with him, have a chat and often act out a comedy skit, its very own platform.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, they are trying to sell his signature segment to various cable buyers including subscription service SVOD [Subscription Video on Demand].

The new show will be produced by CBS Television Studio's and Ben's Fulwell 73 production company and is expected to spark a bidding war with it being high in demand having reached 412 million YouTube views.

At present, Ben is holding presentations for their proposed plans that are expected to be rounded up by the end of this week and a host is to be confirmed imminently.

As it stands, Corden is not going to take on hosting duties, he will instead support Ben in producing the show and will make occasional appearances, according to the report.

A potential competitor for Carpool Karaoke is Spike TV's 'Lip Sync Battle', who have announced plans to run their own take on Corden's skit.

Meanwhile, Corden - who moved out to America from Britain to do 'The Late Late Show' - feels "lucky" he gets to do what he does.

He previously said: "I feel lucky every time I get in the car with any of these people who I just really admire and respect."
