“Top Gear” is the world’s largest entertainment automotive show. The original British version of the program debuted in 2002. It is estimated that so far it has reached 350 million viewers worldwide in over 200 countries. For 25 seasons, the series has delighted viewers around the globe with its unique combination of entertainment, humor and car knowledge. “Top Gear America” is a new take on the classic “Top Gear” format. The program is hosted by an explosive American trio – actor Dax Shepard, actor and comedian Rob Corddry and well-known car expert and journalist Jethro Bovingdon. The irreplaceable – and shrouded mystery – Stig driver returns!
As befits a “Top Gear”, Dax, Rob and Jethro take a look at the automotive industry with a pinch of salt, subjecting the cars to creative and proprietary tests. In each episode, they highlight what they love about cars and inevitably argue about what they don’t like. Traditionally, the episodes will not run out of comic bloopers and a lot of humor!
