The BBC's Top Gear stopped being the best car show on TV as soon as Jeremy Clarkson was fired this past spring, and co-hosts Richard Hammond and Captain Slow (aka James May) followed their fallen comrade out the door. It's now reported that the trio -- along with Hammond's new goatee -- have signed on for a new motoring show that will air on Amazon Prime. The series, as yet unnamed, will launch next year in the fall, with the three hosts signed on for a three-season commitment spanning 36 episodes. Former Top Gear executive Andy Wilman will serve as producer. Time to sign up for Amazon Prime, if you haven't done so already.
