Apple’s new show Carpool Karaoke: The Series was delayed without any given explanation. According to Reuters, the show is postponed to “later this year.”
Along with the Carpool Karaoke spin-off, another original show by Apple, Planet of the Apps, was also rescheduled to later this year.
Apple’s first tv show has been postponed
In February, Apple announced at the Code Media that it would have its very first series based in the popular segment of the Late Late Show, Carpool Karaoke.During February the tech giant promoted the show and even showed a trailer of the upcoming show.
The show was originally scheduled to launch on Apple Music in April. According to Reuters, the tech giant postponed a premiere party for the show in Los Angeles back in March. Which was then rescheduled to this Monday, but then again, the company postponed the party.
Neither Apple nor CBS, who’s acting as producer of the series, have explained reasons for the delay.CBS Television Studios said in a statement: “We’re excited about our ‘Carpool Karaoke’ for Apple Music, and look forward to everyone seeing it later this year.”
Apple also released a similar statement this week but without the excitement of the TV company. It said, “Carpool Karaoke: The Series will premiere on Apple Music later this year.”Apple is trying to make its way through with news shows and reportedly wants to have hit tv shows to rival HBO and Netflix.
The company also delayed the premiere of Planet of the Apps. The show is in the style of Shark Tank. I don’t see the drama in that but, we’ll have to wait and see.
Carpool Karaoke: The series
The official synopses released by Apple reads, “16 celebrity pairings riding along in a car together as they sing tunes from their personal playlists and surprise fans who don’t expect to see big stars belting out tunes one lane over.”
The trailer reveals that the celebrities are going to have some adventures on their own. We can see them signing Gospel in a laundry service, having a bike competence and so on.
The guest stars to the show include John Legend with Alicia Keys and Billy Eichner with Metallica. Other stars are Will Smith, Shaquille O’Neal, Seth MacFarlane, Ariana Grande, Chelsea Handler, Blake Shelton, Michael Strahan, Jeff Gordon, John Cena.
What about James Corden? Well, you’ll be happy to learn that Corden appears in one episode as well, with Will Smith.The show might be taking the concept to a whole new lever as the footage revealed takes the “Karaoke” concept to a helicopter for a sing-along to R. Kelly’s “I Believe I Can Fly.”
