Jeremy Clarkson and Andy Wilman, #10 on the Motor Trend 2017 Power List of the most influential people in the business

The Grand Tour Presenter and Producer

  They worked together to turn an old-school BBC motoring program into a global television phenomenon, Clarkson the star in front of the camera and Wilman the brains behind it.

The Top Gear story ended but mere months later, Clarkson and Wilman stunned the TV industry by announcing a deal said to be worth $200 million to produce 36 hour-long episodes of a new program, The Grand Tour, for … Amazon.

If broadcast and cable TV operators needed proof their cozy world is about to change forever, this single deal was it. And for a show about men behaving badly with cars, no less.
