Everything we know about Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May's new show for Amazon Prime
Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May have begun filming their new show for Amazon Prime, according to various tweets from the trio.
The new programme is being launched exclusively on Prime after Clarkson got fired from the BBC for punching a producer. Jeff Bezos described the deal to acquire the rights as "very, very, very expensive." Various other suitors, including Netflix, vied for the show but ultimately Amazon was the best fit.
Modern Top Gear was born in 1998 when Clarkson became the presenter, alongside Hammond (known as "Hamster" for his size) and May (known as "Captain Slow"). The show became the most popular BBC programme with over 350 million weekly viewers around the world, bringing in £50 million ($76 million) per year for the corporation.
