The Wrong Mans has been written by Corden and Mathew Baynton, who will play a duo that get caught up in a conspiracy after they discover a ringing phone at a crash scene.
The original concept was developed when Baynton and Corden worked together on Gavin & Stacey.
Exec producer Mark Freeland has claimed that the show will mix "comedy with explosions".
The Wrong Mans will air later this year on BBC Two.
