“Top Gear” may have been one of the most popular television shows out there, but that didn’t stop the BBC from firing its massively popular host, Jeremy Clarkson, after he got in a fight with a producer. While the network had a deal with Clarkson that he couldn’t make another show with a UK company for two years following his dismissal, that certainly wasn’t enough to stop him from finding a new home. Which he’s now done. Clarkson has officially found a host with Amazon, which will produce a show with Amazon Prime to premiere in 2016. Or, as the BBC put it, “a new motoring programme.”

Clarkson won’t be alone, naturally — his cohostsRichard Hammond and James May will be joining him for the new show. Will it be in his contract that fistfights are not allowed, or is just assumed that he won’t be doing that again?
