Top Gear Trio Announce New Series With Amazon

Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May, the former hosts of the popular car show Top Gear have found a new home on Amazon’s streaming video service.

The trio each announced the news of their new exclusive deal with Amazon, and Amazon followed up by tweeting  a landing page urging those who are interested to sign up for Amazon Prime.

Amazon states that the first show will go into production shortly and arrive exclusively on Amazon Prime in 2016.

The show also includes Top Gear’s former executive producer Andy Wilman.

“I feel like I’ve climbed out of a bi-plane and into a spaceship,” says Clarkson about the Amazon deal.

  • Mike Schlee

    Well this sucks for all of us without Amazon Prime. Ah well.

  • smartacus

    Hey wait, Amazon isn’t Netflix!

  • Mike

    Guess your cheap azz doesn’t have Prime. Or maybe you can’t afford it.

  • Mike

    If you’re a student, or know a student with a university email, you can get Prime for half price.

    Yay! More inappropriate quips and shiny cars.

    Do you realize what you are saying?
    You are that poor that Amazon Prime is your link to the good life?
    Is that why you drink the cheap beer?
    Because you are that close to eviction?

    Good for them, and too bad for the BBC – huge loss. Yes, it can get a bit silly at times, but it’s refreshing to see a group of presenters with this kind of chemistry, and the ability to keep the subject matter fun, rather than turning it into an engineering lesson.

  • Joe Kirk

    Dude, $99 a year. That’s less than what it would probably cost to buy the shows. There’s more to Amazon prime than just the instant video, too.
