Apple delays Carpool Karaoke

Formats-headerTHE LATE LATE SHOW WITH JAMES CORDENApple has pushed back the launch of its first original series, Carpool Karaoke.

The tech behemoth is moving into original programming, ordering Carpool Karaoke, reality competition series Planet of the Apps, with reported plans to greenlight drama series and movies.

Carpool Karaoke, an adaptation from a segment on James Corden’s US talkshow, was to be the first of its owned shows, and set to launch this month.

Reuters reported yesterday that this will now not happen, with the series bow delayed to an unspecified date later in the year.

The news wire reported that Apple postponed the LA launch party for the show for the second time this week.

The PR-shy tech firm would not comment or give any reason for the delay, but issued a statement in which it said it will launch on the Apple Music subscription service later this year.
