John Mayer is said to be in talks with Paramount Plus to star as the host of a new US-based late-night talk show series, which will be loosely based on the UK’s Later... With Jools Holland.

According to Variety, the electric guitar hero is nearing a deal with the CBS-owned streaming service to appear in weekly episodes, which will reportedly feature performances from, and interviews with, “musicians, artists and other cultural figures in a setting designed to look like an after-hours club”.
