TBS is injecting a little groove into its original series lineup. The network has greenlit Drop the Mic,
a new mixture of comedy and music from executive producers James Corden
and Ben Winston. Joining them as executive producer is Jensen Karp,
former battle rapper Hot Karl. Drop the Mic is already a huge viral and digital success as an ongoing popular segment on The Late Late Show with James Corden. The new series will be produced by CBS Television Studios and Fulwell 73 and is slated to join the TBS lineup in 2017. Drop the Mic
will pit four celebrities against each other in a rap battle royale
packed with "I can't believe they just said that" moments. Each week's
winner will be chosen by the studio audience. TBS has ordered 16
episodes of Drop the Mic, with a host to be announced later.
