‘A League of Their Own: US Road Trip’ is to return to Sky 1 screens with a second series.
“A League of Their Own is totally on fire at the moment and James, Freddie, Jamie and Jack are on such brilliant form. Ratings and critical response for the studio shows have never been better and the awesome Road Trip specials have broken all records. I can’t wait to see what James puts the guys through in the second Road Trip outing.” – Adam MacDonald, Director of Sky 1
The spin-off production became the highest rating series of the ‘A League of Their Own’ brand with 1.39m viewers tuning in. The usual programme takes the format of a studio based pannel comedy-sport quiz show.
The second run is set to enter production this autumn and once again sees James Corden invite his pals Jack Whitehall (pictured top), Jamie Redknapp and Freddie Flintoff (pictured middle) to America to get back on the road for another adventure they’ll never forget. James will take the boys across the States as he sets them challenges in locations including New York and Miami as well as returning to his adopted hometown of Los Angeles.
The second series of A League of Their Own: US Road Trip will combine stunning locations and exhilarating challenges with an insider’s look all the hilarious antics the boys get up to en route. It will also provide a chance for fans to see the gang they know and love in further unique situations outside of the studio.
In addition, Sky has ordered a further three series of BAFTA-winning, supersized, panel show A League of Their Own from CPL. The show which invented the ‘Mobot’, ‘tattooed’ One Direction’s Niall Horan and smashed multiple Guinness World Records is firmly established amongst the elite with its unique blend of sports, comedy and entertainment.
An eleventh series of ‘A League of Their Own’ will air on Sky 1 this Autumn, with James Corden back in the hosting seat alongside regular team captains Jamie Redknapp and Freddie Flintoff and permanent panellist Jack Whitehall.
“I’m so so pleased to have secured another three years of the genre defining studio show for our Sky customers.” – Adam MacDonald, Director of Sky 1
