Posted by: Xavier Kwan onMay 12th, 2016


Since their departure from the Top Gear franchise, Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond, and James May have been busy working on a new project with Amazon Prime. Starting a new show up from scratch is a lot of work. According to interviews with James May who acknowledged the show has a huge per episode budget, he also open admitted that not only does it cost a lot to produce good quality TV, their spending budget also included buying things like printers and supplies for their new office.

But all that aside, they thing that’s got the team’s head scratching lately is what to name the show. It looks like that’s now also been settled…so moving along. OK, lets take a step back and recognize the new show name which has been dubbed “The Grand Tour” which will start airing this fall.

According to Clarkson, he said “Thing is, we’ll be travelling the world hosting each episode in a different country, from a giant tent. It’s a sort of ‘grand tour,’ if you like. So we’ve decided to call it ‘The Grand Tour.’”
