DESCRIPTION:
(from BBC America's press release, March 2017) BBC AMERICA announced today the greenlight of Top Gear America. With a nod to its UK roots, the reimagined US spin-off of Top Gear will appear on BBCA with three new presenters in eight hour-long episodes starting later this year. The series will be hosted by racing enthusiast and veteran film and television actor William Fichtner, world champion drag racer Antron Brown, and premier British automotive journalist Tom "Wookie" Ford. Season 24 of Top Gear is currently airing Sundays at 8/7c on BBCA. Sarah Barnett, President of BBCA, commented: "We are big fans of the mix of cars, credibility and charisma that adds up to the winning formula for Top Gear, and couldn't be happier that BBCA is now the home for the franchise in the US, with Top Gear America joining the original show on our network. Bill, Antron and Wookie are serious gearheads who never take themselves too seriously. It will be quite the trip." Top Gear America reviews not just exclusive and state-of-the-art vehicles but also the cars of America's culture defining past. From the latest supercars to the ultimate in automotive engineering technology, Top Gear America puts the viewer in the passenger seat alongside the car-obsessed hosts as they race the most incredible vehicles on the scenic highways and historic tracks of the American west. Each week will feature a different celebrity who will compete for top honor on the leader board at the new Top Gear studio and track, Speed Vegas. Of course, the one and only Stig, Top Gear's mysterious test driver, will be leaving everyone in his petrol-hazed wake.
