Former Top Gear hosts Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May have signed a deal for a new motoring show with Amazon.
The trio left the hit BBC show after Clarkson was dropped after he punched producer Oisin Tymon in a row over a steak dinner.
The new show will be available to Amazon Prime customers around the world, with the first of three series due to be broadcast next year.
.@amazonvideouk now saying I can't be their chief drone pilot. Apparently they want us to make a car show.
I've got a job I've got a job I've got a job. Haircut, clean jeans and practice driving again. Forrrrwaaaaaaaard!!
Former Top Gear executive producer Andy Wilman will work with them on the programme.
Clarkson said he felt like he had "climbed out of a bi-plane and into a spaceship", while May joked: "We have become part of the new age of smart TV. Ironic, isn't it?"
Jay Marine, Vice President of Amazon Prime Video EU, said: "We can’t wait to see what Jeremy, Richard, James and the team will create in what is sure to be one of the most globally anticipated shows of 2016."

BBC director general Tony Hall has denied any knowledge of claims that Jeremy Clarkson was secretly offered a return as Top Gear host.
Clarkson was sacked earlier this year after he punched producer Oisin Tymon in a row over a steak dinner.
But he told the Sun he met an unnamed BBC executive days before Chris Evans was announced as the new host.
Lord Hall told Andrew Marr: "I have no idea what that's all about. "Sadly, and I say sadly, because I think Jeremy Clarkson is an extraordinary talent, I announced we were parting company some months ago. I am thrilled Chris Evans has got the job."
Sacked Top Gear presenter Jeremy Clarkson has dropped the biggest hint yet that he might be developing a car show to rival his old employer.
Writing in The Sun, Clarkson admitted that he missed the BBC, but said "I won't miss making a car show".
He added: "Because other broadcasters are available so I don't have to stop doing that. See you on the flipside."
Clarkson, who left the BBC after punching a producer in a row over a meal, has long been rumoured to be in talks with various other broadcasters - including ITV - but until now hasn't spoken out himself.
Jeremy Clarkson has claimed he was offered a return to Top Gear but had to turn it down as "too much has gone on" since he left the show.Read the full story ›
