Top Gear's Three Musketeers Set To Return With New Series
While “Top Gear” moves forward with new host Chris Evans at the helm, Clarkson, Hammond and May are closer to introducing a new show of their own.
Jeremy Clarkson confirmed the news to The Sunday Times, the details of which are still unknown beyond speculation the new show featuring Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May will be on Netflix. Said details are projected to come in the next few weeks, with the first episode to debut before “Top Gear” returns after next March.
Meanwhile, May will host a two-episode series called “Building Cars Live” on BBC Two. The 90-minute episodes will be broadcast live from BMW’s MINI factory in Oxford, England, where he and co-presenters Kate Humble and Ant Anstead will follow the process of building a car from raw materials. The series will also air before “Top Gear” returns.
Some say that they have a gig going with a company that has been under the radar named Stuffistry.
I wish Clarkson and co all the best and I really hope they succeed, and prove that free speaking on-air talent > 6 figure leftist BBC executives sucking off the public t*t. While I may not be able to do what Clarkson does (for better or for worse) $50 says that 85% of the folks here can do whatever upper management does at the BBC at a deeply discounted rate.
"Dad jeans, dad jeans everywhere." Haha so true. I'm just curious how they configure this show - same over the top drama and production value? What about the Stig? Stars in the cars? I will watch just out of curiosity, but then quickly tune out.
The formula worked pretty well for a while...the Bard, the Bloke and the Snob. I'm sure I'd get a lot more out of this if I understood the fine gradations of British Class. For me, it had two great selling points. First, it was a great travel show. I'll never get to a lot of the locations they went to...and I like to travel, and even if I get there, Avis isn't tossing me a Porsche/Ferrari. Enver Hoxher's private road ? Trashing a GT-R in the outback of Oz ? Hot laps in Dubai ? The silent fourth member of the show was key. Nowhere else did you see a straight up comparison of cars by lap time. It will be interesting to see what they do with the new show.
