BBC AMERICA ACQUIRES THE UK PREMIERE MOTORING SHOW, TOP GEAR

BBC AMERICA moves into Top Gear with the acquisition of one of the UK�s all-time favorite TV franchises. BBC AMERICA acquires an initial 14 episodes of the program which is produced by BBC Production and distributed by BBC Worldwide. Top Gear is slated to premiere this fall.

Renowned for its super-cars, stunts, time trials, road tests and the sharp wit of its presenters, Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May, Top Gear is more than a motor show, it�s an institution on UK television.

Irreverent, witty and refreshingly honest, the Top Gear team, led by Jeremy, take cars to the limit and beyond to find out if they�re as good as their manufacturers claim. Full of stunts, challenges and special features, Top Gear is self-deprecating, inclusive and passionate � there are no boring stats and impenetrable conversations about camshafts and tyre pressures. Instead, Top Gear accelerates away from the competition with authoritative information, entertainment and plenty of style.

BBC AMERICA brings audiences a new generation of award-winning television featuring razor-sharp comedies, provocative dramas, life-changing makeovers and news with a uniquely global perspective. BBC AMERICA pushes the boundaries to deliver high quality, highly addictive and eminently watchable programming to viewers who demand more. BBC AMERICA is distributed by Discovery Networks. It is available on digital cable and satellite TV. For more information about BBC AMERICA visit www.bbcamerica.com
