BBC confirms plans to launch six-part primetime music show with James Corden

Music could be returning to primetime television on BBC, thanks to James Corden. Yes, eleven years after the demise of Top of the Pops, a live, weekly music show is coming back to the BBC.

Music Week reports that Fulwell 73 – the production company Corden runs with The Late Late Show producer Ben Winston, whose work includes the wildly successful Carpool Karaoke series – will produce the yet to be titled music show.

The six-part series would start its trial run this autumn and would feature performances from the world’s biggest music stars, who are also take part in comedy skits,as they do on the legendary US show Saturday Night Live, alongside a regular British presenter and A-list guest host (kind of like a successor to one-off specials like Adele at the BBC).

With a track record including Top of The Pops, as well as having James Corden and his team behind it, BBC may just be on to a winner with this new music series.
