A League Of Their Own: US Road Trip returns for a second adventure and three more series of A League of Their Own are greenlit in new deal between Sky and CPL
Smash hit show ‘A League of Their Own: US Road Trip’ returns to Sky 1 following the blockbuster success of its debut, which saw it become the highest rating series of ‘A League of Their Own’ with 1.39m viewers tuning in.
The new series, set to enter production this Autumn, once again sees James Corden invite his pals Jack Whitehall, Jamie Redknapp and Freddie Flintoff to America to get back on the road for another adventure they’ll never forget. James will take the boys across the States as he sets them challenges in locations including New York and Miami as well as returning to his adopted hometown of Los Angeles.
The second series of A League of Their Own: US Road Trip will combine stunning locations and exhilarating challenges with an insider’s look all the hilarious antics the boys get up to en route. It will also provide a chance for fans to see the gang they know and love in further unique situations outside of the studio.
In addition, Sky has ordered a further three series of BAFTA-winning, supersized, panel show ‘A League of Their Own’ from CPL. The show which invented the ‘Mobot’, ‘tattooed’ One Direction’s Niall Horan and smashed multiple Guinness World Records is firmly established amongst the elite with its unique blend of sports, comedy and entertainment.
An eleventh series of ‘A League of Their Own’ will air on Sky 1 this Autumn, with James Corden back in the hosting seat alongside regular team captains Jamie Redknapp and Freddie Flintoff and permanent panellist Jack Whitehall.

Ratings and critical response for the studio shows have never been better and the awesome Road Trip specials have broken all records. I can’t wait to see what James puts the guys through in the second Road Trip outing and I’m so so pleased to have secured another three years of the genre defining studio show for our Sky customers.”
