Late Night Series to Be Broadcast for the First Time in Portugal

LOS ANGELES, LISBON and AMSTERDAM – March 21, 2018 – CBS Studios International today has announced a licensing agreement with SIC in Portugal for the basic cable rights to THE LATE LATE SHOW with JAMES CORDEN. Premiering in early April, the series will be seen for the first time in Portugal on cable channel SIC Radical, only a few days after the U.S. broadcast.

Since the show’s launch in March 2015 in the U.S., THE LATE LATE SHOW with JAMES CORDEN has quickly become known as the most innovative series in the late night television landscape, attracting appearances from A-list stars including Adele, Madonna, Tom Hanks, Julia Roberts, Tom Cruise, Justin Bieber, David Beckham and Ed Sheeran. Recurring segments and sketches have generated buzzworthy videos that have gone on to become viral hits, like “Crosswalk: The Musical,” with others becoming global spin-off series including CARPOOL KARAOKE and DROP THE MIC.

THE LATE LATE SHOW with JAMES CORDEN has captured the attention of major broadcasters around the world,” said Giovanni Pedde, Senior Vice President, CBS Studios International. “We think it’s terrific that SIC Radical’s young and dynamic audience now gets to see the series in Portugal.”

We are so proud that our show will now be broadcast in the country that brought us Eusebio, Figo, Nuno Gomes and Ronaldo. We hope people enjoy watching this show a fraction as much as we have enjoyed watching those legends,” said Ben Winston and Rob Crabbe, Executive Producers, THE LATE LATE SHOW with JAMES CORDEN.
