Fans of the BBC television series "Top Gear" were devastated when the car show's presenter Jeremy Clarkson was fired in March after a physical altercation with one of the show's producers that sent the producer to the emergency room.
Clarkson's two co-stars, Richard Hammond and James May, quit in solidarity after Clarkson was canned. While the BBC is planning on a new "Top Gear" series without them, the future of the trio has been up in the air.
Wonder no longer: Amazon, which has been emerging as a player in the original television series realm with shows like "Transparent," has picked up Clarkson and co. for a new, as-yet-untitled car show. Joining them will be long-time "Top Gear" producer Andy Wilman, who also quit after Clarkson's firing.
Expect great things. With the trio of Clarkson, Hammond and May, and Wilman producing, "Top Gear" entered the Guinness Book of World Records as the most widely watched factual television show in the world.
The new car show from Clarkson, Hammond and May will premiere on Amazon Prime in 2016.
