Top Gear America is the most successful foreign version of the original show. Still, BBC America is planning a new car show with TG’s own Richard Hammond as the presenter.
The show has a different theme than Top Gear and is called Hard Drive with Richard Hammond. Based on the BBC format, World’s Toughest Driving Tests, it features Hammond traveling the U.S. and competing with local experts driving some of America’s toughest and most extraordinary vehicles. The executive producers for BBC Worldwide Productions are Rob Fox, Elli Hakami and Jane Tranter.
So looks like Hammond’s dream of starting a carrer in America is finally becoming true! Rich is a secret American inside.
James May also has his own show on BBC America, the American version of Man Lab.
