About The Series
It is the first of the three series that the trio agreed to host in Jul 2015, following their departure from the popular BBC car magazine series Top Gear.
The new series will show the trio travelling the world and participating in different car-based adventures. The team has been travelling the world for the last one year and filming at exciting locations.
The series will also comprise studio scenes shot in front of a live audience in a big traveling tent. The first episode will include such a sequence that will be shot in California.
Jay Marine, Vice President of Amazon Prime Video EU commented "Customers have been desperate to find out when they can watch their favorite team back on screen”. "The guys have been having a blast filming the show around the world," he added.

(NFLX), Hulu and HBO recording substantial success with documentaries such as “The Jinx” and “Making a Murder,” it’s up to Amazon to compete against them with successful acts of its own. This new series is expected to do the job for Amazon leveraging on the popularity of the trio.
