apple carpool karaoke trailer

Apple's first original TV series has been delayed.

'Carpool Karaoke' – the first series to be released through the Apple Music streaming platform – was supposed to debut in April, but with the end of the month but a few days away, there's still no sign of it.

According to Reuters, a March premiere party was delayed days before it was supposed to happen, then Apple also cancelled Monday night's launch party.

The latest from Apple and CBS – which airs 'The Late Late Show with James Corden', from which the segment is taken – is that the spinoff will air "later this year". Which could be anytime.

Apple has been on a spending spree of late when it comes to original content. It recently bought a documentary called 'Clive Davis: The Soundtrack of Our Lives', which tells the story of the music mogul who signed Bruce Springsteen. It also commissioned a series called 'Up Next', which shines a light on a different emerging musician each month.

It also has a reality series called 'Planet of the Apps', which follows app developers as they try to make it big in the App Store.

Apple's long-awaited TV streaming service has been delayed numerous times due to negotiations with TV networks. These original commissions are something of a concession to that. Let's hope it can get its act together for its other original commissions, otherwise Apple Music customers will be left wanting.
