Jeremy Clarkson’s Amazon Car Show to Film Live in U.S., U.K., Germany

LONDON — Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May’s new travelling motoring show “The Grand Tour” is set to touch down in the U.S., U.K. and Germany.

The upcoming series, which is backed by Amazon Prime and available exclusively to its members, will see the former “Top Gear” hosts travel to different locations around the world each week. Pre-recorded studio sections will be filmed in front of a live audience, housed in a giant tent, and Amazon customers in each territory have the chance to be a part of the audience through prize draws.

Brit customers can enter the prize draw from July 7 for a chance to win a trip to attend a U.K. studio recording skedded to take place in autumn, including travel accommodation and spending money and the chance to meet Clarkson, Hammond and May. Customers can go to http://www.amazon.co.uk/GTickets.

In June, Amazon announced that the first studio recording of the show will take place in Johannesburg, South Africa in late July.

“Fans have been asking us where ‘The Grand Tour’ will be filming and how they can attend,” said Jay Marine, VP of Amazon Video in Europe. “We’re delighted to announce today new studio locations in the U.K., U.S. and Germany as we continue our plans to bring this anticipated Amazon Prime show to fans around the world.”

Amazon announced in 2015 that Clarkson, Hammond and May would reunite to make a new car show available for Amazon Prime members. The show is produced by the trio’s long-time executive producer Andy Wilman.

Clarkson was fired from the BBC’s hit motoring show “Top Gear” after punching a producer. Hammond and May soon exited the show and the trio quickly signed a deal with Amazon for “The Grand Tour.”

Longtime BBC personality Chris Evans was brought on to reboot “Top Gear” for the channel, along with five co-hosts including actor Matt LeBlanc. Earlier this week, Evans announced his departure from the show after just one series. The show has struggled in the ratings since it relaunched in May.
