History Helps Top Gear US Off Starting Grid

The American version of Top Gear has FINALLY been given a permanent home thanks to cable network History.

After four years of discussions and two failed pilots the successful British motoring show is to finally launch an American remake. The 10-part series, commissioned by History, will include stunts, reviews and celebrity interviews much like the original show. Similar to Jeremy Clarkson's version the US one will also have three hosts: comedian Adam Ferrara, stunt driver Tanner Foust and racing analyst Rutledge Wood.

Previously, both the Discovery Channel and NBC had ordered pilots of the show (which was once titled Sixth Gear) but neither produced a series. Do you hope this version has more luck? Or should they just leave well alone?

God, Oh please god don't let this suck! They are not lying about this being some deep shoes to fill. The only reason why I even flip the channel to BBC America is to watch this show.
