Top Gear Australia

Looks like some great cinematography, something the BBC version was known for.

Thought the same too, it’s actually a great promo.

Looking forward to this.

So you’re happy now the proper promo is out. :wink:

The fact that the full promo is great, doesn’t negate that the teaser promo was in my opinion very average :crazy_face:

Launch event happening at Sydney Motorsport Park tonight, seems they’re spending a pretty penny promoting this series.

There has been some suggestion that the BBC is keenly interested in trying to revive the brand as a TV show in other markets outside the UK - there might be a return of the US version soon as well.

Not sure if this is commonly known or has been mentioned anywhere yet, but Top Gear Australia will be launching with a double episode premiere tomorrow.


Looks like children’s entertainer Emma Watkins will be special guest on episode 1.

Well it’s happening :racing_car: Going back to my motorkhana roots to debut on TOP GEAR!! Launching Ep 1 this Friday @paramountplusau 17th May - cannot wait! #TopGearAU

I vaguely recall seeing an ad or report somewhere :wink:

Was referring to the double episodes available from launch, then reverts to weekly.

But good to see they’re giving it a decent push.

The rest of the article is about the three co-hosts talking about this season.

Maybe I’ve misinterpreted the headline, but the article (unless I missed it) doesn’t really give any explanation as to why it won’t air on 10.

The show could still work or air on FTA, even given the scale of the production, plus still achieve sales or networking in other P+ territories

Surely they have the option to air it on the main or sub channel down the track if they wanted to, either as a preview to drive viewership / subscriptions to Paramount+ etc.

I’ve said it before. They should be screening new Australian content on both Ten and Paramount+ simultaneously. Overseas content can go Paramount+ then Ten.

There must be a reason as to why they don’t though.

Knowing them I wouldn’t read too much into it. It should pop up on FTA either on Ten or somewhere else later down the track.

i’m not saying it won’t, and it is obviously likely at some point it might.

Just didn’t think the headline of the article accurately reflected the purpose / information contained in the piece.
