“Late Late Show” executive producers Ben Winston and Rob Crabbe told Deadline: “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. 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.”
The “Late Late Show” said on Twitter it hopes the special will be “bringing people together to keep them apart.”
In addition to bringing people together, tonight’s special will be focused on encouraging viewers to follow CDC guidelines as well as government regulations in order to prevent further spread of COVID-19, the Hill reports. The special also aims to raise money for the CDC Foundation and Feed the Children.
