Craig Ferguson brings his Late Late Show to Scotland

Earlier this year, Craig Ferguson brought his US chat show, The Late Late Show,  back to Scotland to film a week's worth of programmes.

He brought with him guest Mila Kunis, Michael Clarke Duncan and Rashida Jones and they visited everywhere from Edinburgh Castle to Arbroath. Here's the trailer for the shows which start airing on May 14.

And Craig seems to have changed his tune a bit since the days of Bing Hilter and dissing Cumbernauld .

 “This whole trip to Scotland, I can’t tell you how lovely it is. How great the people are, how beautiful the towns are. I’m shocked… my memory is completely wrong!” he said to guest Rashida Jones while filming in Arbroath Harbour.

Joining the starry actors for the CBS show will be renowned author David Sedaris and Flying Wild Alaska star Ariel Tweto.

Between them, they visit Edinburgh, Glasgow, Ferguson’s hometown of Cumbernauld and the historic burgh of Arbroath.

Along the way, he visits Edinburgh Castle, The Royal Mile, Calton Hill, Glamis Castle and Kelvingrove Art Gallery, as well as Ferguson’s childhood home and high school, among other locations.

The shows will also feature a concert series with local Glasgow rock band The Imagineers from the Tron Theatre in Glasgow.

The Imagineers will also perform their own rendition of the The Late Late Show theme song during these episodes.

The Late Late Show  continues to be the only late night talk show to travel internationally. The trip to Scotland marks the second international trip for the show, following Le Late Late Show avec Craig Ferguson which filmed in Paris and aired in August 2011.

The Late Late Show  with Craig Ferguson in Scotland  is executive produced by Peter Lassally, produced by Michael Naidus and is a co-production between Worldwide Pants and STV.

STV is Scotland’s most popular peak time TV station, and reaches over 4 million viewers each month.
