This week Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond, James May and Andy Wilman have taken a three year lease on a 5,495 sq ft London office space, rather fittingly called Power Road Studios, located in Chiswick. The space will be the home for their new production company W Chump & Sons, which will be making the group’s new motoring show on Amazon Prime.
It will be a short commute for James May, who lives in Hammersmith but is a previous resident of Chiswick. It’s also located in the same area where Jeremy Clarkson once caused a traffic jam, when he tried to drive a Ford GT over Hammersmith Bridge during a test drive, but failed due to the vehicle being too wide.
Amazon Prime has commissioned three series of the yet-to-be-titled motoring show, which is set to launch in 2016 with 12 hour-long episodes per series. They are to make 36 episodes of a new car show series over three years. The show is expected to be mainly UK-based with a new look, new studio and new road trips. The three stars will also continue to pursue other projects .
