NBC has ordered a pilot for the BBC Worldwide America series Top Gear. Top Gear features super-cars, extreme stunts, time trials and road tests, and assesses the performances of some of the world’s most popular cars. It also features celebrity guests.
“We’ve had our eye on Top Gear for a while now, and think the show can really click with viewers,” said Craig Plestis, executive vp, alternative programming, development and specials, NBC Entertainment. “The concept taps into America’s obsession with cars and is unlike anything else on television.”
Ben Silverman, co-chairman, NBC Entertainment and Universal Media Studios, added, “Top Dear is a proven international hit which fits perfectly into NBC’s lineup of programming with male appeal, including Sunday Night Football and American Gladiators.”
The series premiered in the United Kingdom in 1977 and has been one of the most watched programs on BBC over the years. It currently airs on BBC America in the U.S.
This is the second programming deal between NBC and BBC Worldwide America. BBC recently provided NBC with the reality show Clash of the Choirs, a short-run, four night event.
BBC Worldwide America also produces Dancing with the Stars, which airs on ABC; and Dance War: Bruno vs. Carrie Ann, which premiered on ABC this week.
it won't. this is America's version. it's going to be as bad as, if not worse than, for example, say...Iron Chef America. that show didn't completely transfer over all too well. if I want TG, I'll watch BBC America or watch it on the internet.Carbonized_GT said:It will suck if it doesn't have Clarkson/Hamster/May.
