Chris Harris Joins Top Gear While Producer Departs


And no, Clarkson didn't have anything to do with it.

We’ve been accustomed to hearing a lot about what the former Top Gear trio are up to, now that they’ll soon be on Amazon Prime. But what about Top Gear itself and new host Chris Evans? Well, we already know that it’ll premiere on May 8, 2016, but it’s already been dealt its first blow. According to The Guardian, its new executive producer has just quit. Lisa Clark, who was personally brought in by Evans (the two worked together on The Big Breakfast), worked on the show for less than five months.

And now she’s left the BBC in order to pursue "new projects." A guy named Alex Renton, who’s been a series editor on Top Gear for a decade, will take over as interim executive producer until a permanent replacement is hired. Fortunately, the airdate for the new Top Gear will not be affected by this, claims the BBC. Still though, the loss of the executive producer of a major program such as this only a few months before the premiere isn’t the best thing. UPDATE: We've just learned that none other than Chris Harris is set to join Chris Evans as one of the new hosts of Top Gear. We'll bring you all the details the moment they come in.
