British TV star James Corden will make his presentational debut for ‘The Late Late Show’ on March 9th 2015. The show will be executive-produced by Corden’s friend and colleague Ben Winston, CBS also stated on Thursday.

James Corden will make his 'Late Late Show' debut on March 9th next year.

The show will be recorded at CBS Television City in Los Angeles, which will disappoint many in Broadway circles who believed that the show might be made in New York.

CBS Entertainment’s chairman Nina Tassler said of Winston’s appointment: “He and Ben have been friends for a long time and partnered together on a variety of successful projects. They are a creatively dynamic and very energetic host/producer combination”.

As well as collaborating with Corden on many occasions, Winston has in the past worked closely with pop sensations One Direction, receiving an MTV Video Music Award and a BRIT Award for directing the video for ‘Best Song Ever’ last year, which also featured Corden.

The network announced last month that Corden would be replacing fellow Brit Craig Ferguson as the show’s presenter, who himself gave notice of his intention to step down from the show back in April. It represents something of a gamble for CBS, as Corden is relatively unknown in the States.

The 34 year old has been a mainstay of British television for the best part of a decade. He frequently starred alongside his comedic partner-in-crime Mat Horne, most notably in the long-running sitcom ‘Gavin & Stacey’ and as four-time hosts of the annual BRIT Awards, before branching off on his own in recent years.

In the past, Tassler described Corden as “the ultimate multi-hyphenate — a writer, creator and performer who is loved and respected in every medium he touches, including theater, comedy, music, film and television.” Clearly she didn’t see Lesbian Vampire Killers. Then again, nobody did.
