Corden, Redknapp for Sky1's 'League'

Tuesday, October 20 2009,

James Corden and Jamie Redknapp have signed up to front a new Sky1 show called A League Of Their Own.

Corden will referee the panel show, which has recruited former England footballer Kedknapp as a team captain opposite Stuart Broad.

League will set two teams of comedians, celebrity sports fans and major league sports stars against each other to see who has the most in-depth sporting knowledge.

"We're really excited to have James Corden, Jamie Redknapp and Stuart Broad bringing their sporting and comedic prowess to such a great production," said commissioning editor Duncan Gray.

A League Of Their Own will air on Sky1 later this year.
