Jeremy Clarkson and is fellow Top Gear presenters announced on Thursday that they have signed a deal with Amazon to produce a new motoring show.
Co-presenters Richard Hammon and James May will also join him in the new venture with Amazon Video. Clarkson was fired by the BBC earlier this year after a violent drunken altercation with his producer.
Chris Evans, a TV and radio presenter, will take the helm of Top Gear and it has been rumored he will be joined by former Formula 1 World Champion Jensen Button. Button currently races for McLaren.
Clarkson has signed a three-series deal, which will only be available to Amazon Prime customers.
Clarkson believes he now has a licence to tell as many jokes as he wants.
Jay Marine, vice-president of Amazon Prime Video in Europe, said: “Customers told us they wanted to see the team back on screen, and we are excited to make that happen. Millions of Prime members are already enjoying our ground-breaking original shows. We can’t wait to see what Jeremy, Richard, James and the team will create in what is sure to be one of the most globally anticipated shows of 2016.”
