Ex-‘Top Gear’ Producer On “Perfect Storm” At BBC & Jeremy Clarkson’s New Amazon Series – Edinburgh Video

25 August 2016 8:28 AM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Former Top Gear exec producer Andy Wilman told an audience of industry executives at the Edinburgh TV Festival that his departure last year from the BBC — and that of the show's principals — was part of "a perfect storm" that had been brewing for some time, and one which might have been avoided. Wilman exited the motoring show in 2015 as longtime friend and series host Jeremy Clarkson's contract was not renewed after a now infamous fracas with a producer. Co-hosts James… »

Assetto Corsa Review

25 August 2016 8:00 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Tough, uncompromising and light on frills, Assetto Corsa is a racing title for serious drivers that arrives on the PS4 and Xbox One nearly two years after its debut on PCs. As a pure driving experience, it’s perhaps the finest one consoles have ever seen, but it lacks the pomp and ceremony to make casual fans really sit up and take notice.

Existing fans won’t care and Assetto Corsa‘s pedigree is in no doubt. This is a firm favorite of the PC community due in no small part to the legion of modders that have helped tinker with its foundations. Modding on consoles is a different beast entirely (and time will tell whether it gets the same treatment on PS4 and Xbox One), but the good news is that this console edition of the game is bundled with the Dlc that PC players had to wait for. »

‘The Grand Tour’ Executive Producer Andy Wilman on Working With Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond, James May

25 August 2016 12:10 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Edinburgh, Scotland — “The Grand Tour,” the new auto show from former “Top Gear” hosts Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May, launches on streaming platform Amazon Prime Video in the fall. At the Edinburgh Intl. Television Festival Wednesday the show’s executive producer Andy Wilman, who held the same position on “Top Gear,” explained how the team had started afresh.

Wilman and Clarkson, who had gone to the same school, joined BBC’s “Top Gear” in 2002 and helped build it into the most popular factual show in the world. In March 2015, Clarkson was sacked by the BBC for punching a producer, and Wilman, Hammond and May decided to leave the show, too. In July 2015, Amazon announced that the former “Top Gear” team would be producing a new car show for them, and earlier this year they revealed its name: “The Grand Tour.”

Wilman said there will be 12 shows a year for three years, with »

Bleeding Fingers Stretches Its Grasp With ‘Planet Earth II’

24 August 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Bleeding Fingers Custom Music Shop cut its ribbon three years ago, partnering with Oscar winner Hans Zimmer to mass-produce scores for unscripted, reality, and documentary TV series that include “Survivor” and “Alaskan Bush People.” Its latest and biggest catch is BBC’s upcoming “Planet Earth II.”

The shop’s origins go back to 1982, when Russell Emanuel was working in the mailroom of London music library Bruton Music. He was invited to record an album of sound-alike songs, corresponding to such bands as Duran Duran, and while he spent the next 15 years in the rock world, steady royalty checks from that first album “kept rolling in.”

Entering the music library world, then, “seemed like a good way to get off the tour bus,” so Emanuel formed Extreme Music with a partner in 1997 — catering mostly fresh Edm music to such clients as the BBC and ITV. “Top Gear” was an early adopter. »

Could Jeremy Clarkson Return to ‘Top Gear’?

23 August 2016 1:24 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Could Jeremy Clarkson return as host of BBC’s “Top Gear” just one year after he was fired for punching a producer? What had once seemed unthinkable now looks like a possibility. Former BBC boss Mark Thompson this week told Britain’s Sunday Times Magazine said kicking Clarkson out at the curb was a mistake. And the show’s been on the downslide since Clarkson’s departure — without an emergency brake. Ratings have tanked, with the recent season’s finale pulling in a mere 1.9 million viewers in the U.K. Last season, the Clarkson-led program averaged 6.49 million viewers per episode. »

Former BBC Boss Say Firing Jeremy Clarkson From ‘Top Gear’ Was a Mistake

22 August 2016 8:00 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

The BBC made a massive mistake by firing “Top Gear” host Jeremy Clarkson last year — or so the network’s former boss thinks. While the drama surrounding Clarkson’s suspension and subsequent dismissal for assaulting a producer sparked huge headlines around the world, it’s resulted in a disaster for the network’s hit car show. “Clarkson can be a deeply objectionable individual, and I say that as a friend. I don’t think people should punch their colleagues. It’s hard to keep them if they do,” Mark Thompson, who is now CEO of the New York Times, told Britain’s Sunday Times Magazine. »

BBC should have tried to keep Jeremy Clarkson, says ex-director general

22 August 2016 3:04 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Former Top Gear presenter could be a ‘deeply objectionable character’ but he spoke to people the BBC does not otherwise reach, says Mark Thompson

The BBC should have tried to keep hold of Top Gear presenter Jeremy Clarkson whose talent they could ill afford to lose, former director general Mark Thompson has said.

While Clarkson could be a “deeply objectionable character”, he “spoke to people who didn’t find much else at the BBC”, Thompson said in an interview with the Sunday Times Magazine.

10 August 2016 12:26 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Matt LeBlanc says that his return to “Top Gear” is still not set in stone.

Amazon Still Facing Hurdles as Prime Video Volume Grows

7 August 2016 4:41 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Amazon’s volume of original TV shows and movies is growing at a fast clip. But the world’s largest retailer is still battling a disconnect with some consumers in providing easy access to its menu of original content.

That list includes David E. Kelley, the prominent exec producer of its new Billy Bob Thornton-William Hurt legal drama series “Goliath.”

“I am a little daunted by the fact that Amazon shows aren’t the easiest to watch,” Kelley admitted Sunday following the show’s session at the Television Critics Association press tour at the Beverly Hilton.

Many newer connected TV sets come with the Amazon Prime app already set on the home screen, making it easy for members to stream shows in their living rooms. But the app is not supported yet on other interfaces such Apple TV and Google’s Chromecast because of business issues. For viewers, that »
