Fired BBC “Top Gear” host Jeremy Clarkson has signed a deal with Amazon to present a new car show alongside his former co-presenters Richard Hammond and James May.

Amazon said the new show, to be overseen by the trio’s long time executive producer Andy Wilman, will be available on its subscription streaming service Amazon Prime in 2016 and run for three seasons.

It gave no further details of the as-yet unnamed show. In a statement released by Amazon, Clarkson said, “I feel like I’ve climbed out of a bi-plane and into a spaceship.”

Clarkson was let go from the BBC for physically attacking a member of Top Gear’s production staff in March. May and Hammond left soon thereafter.

Clarkson, 55, was replaced as lead presenter of the globally popular Top Gear show - aired in more than 200 countries and watched by 350 million viewers worldwide - by television presenter and DJ Chris Evans.
