Los Angeles, May 4 : TV host and actor James Corden will be paying the salaries of 60 people, who have been furloughed from the production department of his "The Late Late Show" reportedly from his own pocket.
Corden took the decision after getting to know that the staff members were informed by CBS that the network will not be paying them any longer, reports variety.com.
The production for the show was halted in March with the lockdown order due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and Corden has been presenting the show from his Los Angeles home since April 14.
Last week, Corden informed some staffers that they would be furloughed and that he would be covering their salaries out of his own pocket. The total cost that Corden will be shelling out is unclear, but is likely to be at least mid-five figures a week.
Meanwhile, Corden along with his team is keeping "The Late Late Show" staffers engaged amid the lockdown with work-from-home projects related to the show.
He is spending his lockdown period with his three children and wife Julia.
