Actor and TV favorite James Corden will host the inaugural star-studded Homefest from his garage as he fills in time after his U.S. late-night show was halted due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The Late Late Show host’s primetime special will feature interviews conducted digitally with illusionist David Blaine and Will Ferrell, and performances from BTS in South Korea, Andrea Bocelli in Italy, Dua Lipa in London, and Billie Eilish, Finneas and John Legend in Los Angeles.
“Since The Late Late Show came off the air, we have been thinking of different ways to try and make a show at this time,” Corden’s chat show executive producers Ben Winston and Rob Crabbe explain.
“With the help of some wonderful guests, we are going to try to put on the best show we can, to entertain, raise awareness, raise money and hopefully lift spirits.
“Shooting from James’ garage may be far from perfect, but under the circumstances, we hope it can help someone, somewhere, who needs some cheer right now.”
Corden and his guests will shed light on safety precautions everyone can take during the global pandemic and direct viewers to websites where they can donate to the Center for Disease Control Foundation and Feed the Children.
Homefest: James Corden’s Late Late Show Special will air on March 30, 2020.
