Jeremy Clarkson and Co. sign with Amazon for new car show

Amazon has announced in their UK website that they’ll be releasing a new show with British journalist and writer Jeremy Clarkson, formerly host of one of BBC’s gem, Top Gear.

Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May are reuniting to create an all-new car show, exclusively for Amazon Prime. The show will be produced by the trio’s long time executive producer Andy Wilman. On working with Amazon, Jeremy Clarkson said “I feel like I’ve climbed out of a bi-plane and into a spaceship.” The first show will go into production shortly and arrive exclusively on Amazon Prime in 2016.

Jeremy Clarkson was fired from Top Gear in March for provoking a quarrel with a producer. Both sides parted on bad terms. Clarkson’s co-hosts and producer Andy Wilman followed him not long after. It has been rumored that a new project was in the works, so this comes as no surprise.

However, it seems that this new Amazon show will be about cars, which was Top Gear’s “thing” and what made it so popular. We’ll see how they make it different.
