Earlier this year the streaming service scooped global, non-US, rights to the show which stars The History Boys and Beautiful People actor Sam Barnett and Elijah Wood.
The streaming giant says it has “often heard” that customers want the freedom to watch shows while out and about in places “where Internet is expensive or limited.”
Amazon Prime has released a trailer for episode 3 of The Grand Tour, Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May’s all-new, hit car series.
The series stars Olyphant and Barrymore and husband and wife realtors Joel and Sheila who lead vaguely discontented lives in the L.A. suburb of Santa Clarita with their teenaged daughter Abby (Liv Hewson).
Based on Michael Faber cult-hit novel, the pilot will be written and executive produced by Matt Charman (Bridge of Spies) and produced by Andy Harries (Strike Back) and Lila Rawlings (Left Bank Productions) with Kevin MacDonald (The Last King of Scotland) directing.
While Amazon hasn’t released any hard numbers, the firm says episode was seen by “millions of Prime members” in the U.S., U.K., Germany, Austria and Japan.
Like millions of other Top Gear fans, I was sorry to see Jeremy Clarkson, James May and Richard Hammond leave the show – though I readily accept the BBC had little choice but to drop Clarkson – and was sorely disappointed with the lazy, half-arsed effort the broadcaster made to continue show without them.
