The Late Show with Stephen Colbert - Fall 2021 Internship Program

After more than a year away from the theater, "The Late Show with Stephen Colbert" internship program is returning to The Ed Sullivan Theater! Our program provides college juniors, seniors, and recent graduates the opportunity to understand the production process of an hour-long late night variety show. The internship will be offered as an in-person experience to those who are fully vaccinated. A remote experience will be offered to those who have not yet been vaccinated or are unable to attend in-person.

CBS Studios is one of the industry's leading suppliers of programming with more than 70 series currently in production across broadcast and cable networks, streaming services and other emerging platforms. The Studio's expansive portfolio spans a diverse slate of commercially successful and critically acclaimed scripted programming, genre-defining franchises including the ever-growing "Star Trek" universe, award-winning late night and daytime talk shows, and an extensive library of iconic intellectual property.


Interns will assist in general production, script, control room operations, music, research, talent, and various other departments within our production. Regardless of department, interns will perform production runs on an as-needed basis. Interns will gain knowledge and understanding of creating a daily television comedy show in a high-paced environment alongside industry professionals.


Interns should have passion and experience within the entertainment industry. We are looking for people who have the ability to thrive in a fast-paced environment, act independently, take initiative, and help the show from the ground up.
