Apple Delays Carpool Karaoke Original Series

There is no word on what is causing delays with the original series

Many fans of Apple Music find the idea of TV shows on the service to be uninteresting, but that hasn't stopped Apple from moving forward with its idea for original programming. One of the first shows for the service was supposed to be Carpool Karaoke: The Series, a series that was to be based on a segment from "The Late Late Show with James Corden."

Originally Apple planned to premiere the show in April, but that launch was delayed. A premiere party was set for March originally, but was postponed and reset for this past Monday, but was again cancelled due to the show's launch getting delayed reports MacRumors.

Apple purchased the rights for Carpool Karaoke in mid-2016 with plans to make a series based on the segment without having involvement from James Corden in each episode. Apple's version of the show will see different hosts for each episode paired with different artists who will drive around and sing their favorite tunes from their Apple Music playlists.

The show is to be made up of 16 half hour episodes and aims to surprise people who happen to pull up next to a car with big stars singing out tunes in the next lane over. Apple's goal is to lure in more subscribers with the show to Apple Music, it will only be available for subscribers to watch. Assuming it ever launches. Apple is mum on what is causing delays in the launch of the show.

"Carpool Karaoke: The Series" will star James Corden, Will Smith, Billy Eichner, Metallica, Alicia Keys, John Legend, Ariana Grande, Seth MacFarlane, Chelsea Handler, Blake Shelton, Michael Strahan, John Cena, Shaquille O'Neal, Maisie Williams, Sophie Turner, and more, with a different host for each episode.
