Paul McCartney’s turn on Carpool Karaoke was certainly a memorable one, and now fans are going get to relive it, and more. CBS will air a one-hour special based on Sir Paul’s appearance, which was shot in his hometown of Liverpool, England, and included a special concert in a pub and a visit to his childhood home. The new episode will feature never-before-seen footage from the installment.
“We were overwhelmed by the response to our ‘Carpool Karaoke’ with Paul McCartney,” executive producer Ben Winston shares. “We loved making it and knew we had something special, but it was so wonderful for us to see how many people watched and enjoyed it.”
Winston notes that when editing the original 23-minute segment they were forced to cut a lot for time. “Not only did Paul do a concert in that Liverpool pub, but James and he discussed so much in the car,” he adds. “We are so delighted CBS has given us this primetime special to make an hour-long version of this ‘Carpool Karaoke.’ Now everyone can see the joy of that concert and more of their chat.”
