TV industry titans unite
In a highly anticipated event, James Corden is set to give his first industry interview since his departure from the Late Late Show and his return to the UK. The interview is scheduled to take place at the RTS Cambridge Convention next month.
During this exclusive session, Corden will delve into his future plans, aligning with the overarching theme of the convention, which centers around the modern challenge of "Too Much to Watch."
Having gained prominence in the United States through his remarkable performance in the Broadway play "One Man, Two Guvnors," Corden's journey continued as he took the helm of The Late Late Show, significantly elevating his stardom. Earlier this year, he bid farewell to the CBS show, culminating a tenure of nearly a decade and close to 2,000 episodes, marking the end of an era.
Joining an illustrious lineup sponsored by Channel 4, Corden shares the spotlight with esteemed figures such as CAA Co-Chairman Bryan Lourd, Piers Morgan, Gerhard Zeiler, the head of Warner Bros. Discovery international, and leaders from major broadcasters and Sky. Notably, Bryan Lourd will engage in conversation with renowned British actress Emma Thompson.
The roster has been expanded with the inclusion of notable personalities such as ex-BBC Director General Greg Dyke, the skilled mind behind The Office's success, Ash Atalla, and Andy Coulson, who has recently offered guidance to the family of BBC newsreader Huw Edwards.
Channel 4's CEO, Alex Mahon, emphasized the remarkable diversity of the lineup, showcasing "thought-provoking individuals in television, internationally renowned and strategic CEOs, along with a new group of forward-thinking media trailblazers." This assembly represents a convergence of unparalleled expertise in the industry.
Mark your calendars for the upcoming Convention, taking place on September 18 and 19 in the historic city of Cambridge. This gathering promises insightful discussions, profound perspectives, and a convergence of industry luminaries.
