A Grammy-winning voice may be heading to late-night TV.
According to Variety, musician John Mayer is in talks to host his own late-night talk show for Paramount+, the streaming service previously known as CBS All Access.
Variety reports that the singer-songwriter is looking to host “Later with John Mayer”, a new talk show for the streamer based on the format of “Later with Jools Holland”, the long-running show that combines music and chat and has been on the air in the U.K. since 1992.
If a deal is done, the series would run weekly, and could potentially put the kibosh on his lucrative touring with Dead & Company, the Grateful Dead splinter band featuring original band members Bob Weir, Mickey Hart, and Bill Kreutzmann.
On the flip side, hosting a talk show wouldn’t exactly be foreign territory for the seven-time Grammy winner. In addition to his own “Current Mood” Instagram Live show, he filled in as a guest host on “The Late Late Show” after the departure of Craig Ferguson.
