CBS has announced a brand new international talent competition series from celebrated television producers Mike Darnell and Mark Burnett. James Corden, Emmy Award-winning host of The Late Late Showwith James Corden, will host The World’s Best and pull double duty as executive producer. Drew Barrymore, RuPaul Charles and Faith Hill will serve as the three American judges. “It’s only fitting that The World’s Best perform in front of the world’s best,” said Sharon Vuong, Senior Vice President, Alternative Programming for CBS. “James, Drew, Faith and RuPaul are all amazing talents who have excelled in their respective fields on a global scale. We can’t wait for them to bring their distinct voices to a show that’s unlike any other.” The World’s Best will premiere on CBS with a 10-episode first season in 2019.
