apple carpool karaoke trailer

Apple has revealed the trailers for two of its first original TV content offerings: 'Carpool Karaoke' and 'Planet of the Apps'.

'Carpool Karaoke' was spun out of 'The Late Late Show with James Corden', and the trailer shows little has changed. It still consists of a host driving a musical guest around while they sing along to some of the guest's biggest hits. But there have been some tweaks to the format.

Corden doesn't host every episode, for starters. And some action takes place outside the car, too, for example in a bakery and helicopter.

Guests include Will Smith, Shaquille O'Neal and Metallica.

Apple secured the rights to the show about six months ago.

'Planet of the Apps' is a different kettle of fish. It's a reality show that follows app developers as they try to make it big on he iTunes Store. The format looks a lot like 'Dragons' Den', in that judges – including and Gwyneth Paltrow – evaluate the app makers' projects.

If a judge likes the idea, they will recruit the developer onto their team, and then mentor them through the competition. Just like 'The Voice'.

Both shows will be available via Apple Music, Apple's music streaming service.

Apple is rumoured to be working on a TV streaming service, but it has reportedly been delayed numerous times due to contract negotiations. If Apple can make enough original content, maybe it will do a Netflix and shun some established shows and films in favour of its own.
