Amazon Announces New Car Show Featuring the Old Top Gear Presenters.

The announcement about the new show, which will be available to Amazon Prime customers around the world, ends the speculation about the trio’s future after they left the BBC amid much controversy. The trio left the hit BBC show after Clarkson was dropped from following a fracas with the show’s Irish producer Oisin Tymon during which he allegedly punched him and called him “lazy”.

Amazon has announced that Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May will be reuniting to create “an all-new car show” that will be exclusively on Amazon Prime.The comedy and entertainment producer, who has previously worked on The Big Breakfast, Shooting Stars and Vic & Bob’s House Of Fools, has earned a resounding endorsement from Evans. “Lisa is as good as it gets when it comes to making big, important television shows.

Jay Marine, Vice President of Amazon Prime Video EU, said: “Customers told us they wanted to see the team back on screen, and we are excited to make that happen. “Millions of Prime members are already enjoying our ground-breaking original shows. Amazon and Netflix had been the favorites to take the trio, who were behind one of the world’s most successful and the BBC’s most lucrative factual TV shows, after it emerged that a clause in their contact with the broadcaster stipulated that they couldn’t make another motoring program in the U.K. for two years, ruling out ITV. Chris Evans, a TV and radio presenter, will take the helm of Top Gear and it has been rumored he will be joined by former Formula 1 World Champion Jensen Button. In 2001, she set up Pett Television with Reeves & Mortimer, which produced a range of shows including Celebrity Dog School on BBC One, Tittybangbang on BBC Three, Angelos Epithemiou on Channel 4 and Matt Berry Does on BBC iPlayer. Clarkson was famously fired by the BBC earlier in the year after punching a producer, with Hammond and May announcing that they wouldn’t be returning without him shortly afterwards.

Outgoing executive producer Wilman has teamed up with Jeremy Clarkson, James May and Richard Hammond to produce a new motoring show for Amazon Prime Instant, which is due to premiere in 2016. Today’s announcement is seen as a significant move by Amazon Prime, which is competing against other streaming services such as Netflix, Hulu and iTunes.
