TOP GEAR AMERICA is produced by the Los Angeles production office of global content leader, BBC Studios.
TOP GEAR AMERICA will deliver a fresh, uniquely American take on the classic TOP GEAR format, following the motorized mischief and supercharged adventures of Shepard, Corddry and Bovingdon across America. Every episode will explore a different entertaining journey into car culture from an American point-of-view. Whether they're mud bogging in the south, driving super cars in Wyoming, drag racing in southern California or partaking in the hand built, custom hot rod scene, TOP GEAR AMERICA endeavors to explore it all.
"TOP GEAR AMERICA is going to be a great ride, in great company," said Alex Wellen, global president and general manager of MotorTrend Group. "MotorTrend is proud to be producing this new chapter in American car culture. Dax, Rob and Jethro share a passion for cars.

When production kicks off on January 26, Shepard, Corddry and Bovingdon will dive head first into southern California hot rodding history. With a modest budget they'll each purchase a hot rod and race against the Stig and his 1980s era police cruiser. The TOP GEAR AMERICA hosts also will get behind the wheel of some of the most iconic high-performance vehicles on the planet for a comparative, enlightening joy ride.
TOP GEAR is the world's biggest motoring entertainment show. The original British version of the show debuted in its current format in 2002, and has reached an estimated audience of 350 million viewers worldwide in more than 200 territories. Across its 25+ seasons the show has thrilled viewers globally with its unique blend of entertainment, humor and car knowledge. TOP GEAR is a fast-paced and stunt-filled automotive show that tests whether cars, both mundane and extraordinary, live up to their manufacturers' claims. The long running series travels to locations around the world, performing extreme and often utterly pointless stunts and challenges to see what the featured cars can do and how much fun you can have with them. Celebrities including Tom Cruise, Cameron Diaz and Will Smith have all appeared as guests in a regular segment where they set a lap time on the famous TOP GEAR track in an ordinary, everyday car. TOP GEAR (UK) has had many celebrity hosts including Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond, James May, Matt LeBlanc, and the current cast of Paddy McGuinness, Freddie Flintoff and Chris Harris.

Dax Shepard is a lifelong gearhead who grew up in Detroit and was raised by a single mother working in the automotive industry. As the owner of a 1967 Lincoln Continental, a 1994 Buick Roadmaster Estate Wagon, a Mercedes AMG E63 and several on-road and off-road motorcycles, Shepard's deep passion for the car world is not only reflected in his hobbies but also in his art. He is the writer, director and star of "CHIPS," about two motorcycle highway patrolmen, and "Hit and Run," about a getaway driver who goes on the lam in order to save his girlfriend. In addition to his film credits, Shepard played Crosby Braverman on seven seasons of "Parenthood" and is currently starring in three television series: Netflix's "The Ranch" opposite Ashton Kutcher and Sam Elliott; the ABC sitcom "Bless This Mess" with Lake Bell; and as the host of the FOX game show "Spin the Wheel." Last year, Shepard launched "Armchair Expert," a podcast in which he talks with some of the most iconic, creative personalities around the world. "Armchair Expert" was the most downloaded new podcast of 2018.
Four-time Emmy award-winning actor, producer and comedian, and Peabody Award-winning fake journalist, Rob Corddry has been a car enthusiast since his teens when he learned how to drive in a blue 1980s Chevy Celebrity wagon. His love for cars grew after driving to the beach every night in his buddy Jeff's 1965 Mustang held together with bondo. He bought his first car, a white 1975 Ford Pinto wagon with woody walls and rusted out floorboards, for five dollars from a family friend. Having driven some of the coolest rides for five seasons on the hit HBO series "Ballers", Corddry loves driving his 2018 Porsche 911 S, a 1978 Datsun 280z and is "merely fine" driving his boring Lexus RX 350. Corddry is best known for his work on Adult Swim's satirical comedy series "Childrens Hospital", which he created, executive produced and starred in. He recently wrapped production on Netflix's "Medical Police", a "Childrens Hospital" spin-off series premiering January 2020, and can currently be seen in the CBS comedy, "The Unicorn". Corddry was a correspondent on "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart" from 2002 to 2006 and starred in other TV series including "Speechless", "Happy Endings", "Arrested Development", "Community", "Curb Your Enthusiasm" and more. Additionally, he has starred in several feature films including "Dog Days", "Hot Tub Time Machine", "Office Christmas Party", "Seeking a Friend for the End of the World" and many more.
Jethro Bovingdon is one of the world's most respected automotive journalists, having spent more than 20 years behind the wheel for many of the industry's most influential media outlets including CAR, evo, DriveTribe, Automobile and MotorTrend. Besides being a skillful writer and analyst, Jethro is also one of the fastest car journalists on the planet, having won his class three times in the grueling 24 Hours of N�rburgring endurance race. Bovingdon brings a British respectability and sophistication to what is sure to be an otherwise raucous and uniquely "American" take on TOP GEAR.
