    Top Gear Australia buckles up for its premiere on Paramount+

    Top Gear Australia will premiere on Paramount+ on Friday, 17 May in Australia.

    Taking the wheel as hosts of the high-octane show are Beau Ryan, Blair Joscelyne and Jonathan LaPaglia, who will deliver a blend of entertainment, information, and automotive passion with outrageous challenges to fans of the franchise.

    Over eight parts, the trio, along with the Aussie Stig, will take audiences on exciting automotive adventures from our own backyard, through to the winding roads of the French Alps, the historic streets of Rome, the St Tropez coastline, and rugged Colombian jungle.

    Internationally, the series will also premiere in Canada on Friday, 17 May, and in Latin America, Italy, Germany, Switzerland, Austria, France and Japan at a later date.

    Top Gear Australia, produced by BBC Studios Productions Australia, joins a host of the Paramount+ Australian Originals currently streaming on Paramount+, including Last King Of The Cross, Five Bedrooms, NCIS: Sydney and The Inspired Unemployed (impractical) Jokers, with Fake streaming soon.

    Mediaweek was on the ground at the F1 in Melbourne last month when Beau Ryan has confirmed the eight-part series will hit Paramount+ in May.

    Ryan, speaking at the Paramount suite during the weekend’s Australian Grand Prix alongside co-hosts Blair Joscelyne and Jonathan LaPaglia, said the trio recently finished filming on the F1 track.

    The hosts wrapped by doing a ‘hot lap’ around the Albert Park circuit, after filming across the US and Australia for four months. Ryan emphasised how unusual it is to take four months to film just eight episodes.

    “This is the most excited we’ve been for a show in 10 years,” he added.

    The new Australian version of the show was announced at Ten’s upfront in October.

    At the time, Paramount AUNZ’s SVP of content and programming, Daniel Monaghan said: “Top Gear Australia promises to deliver everything fans love about the show but with an Aussie twist. We can’t wait for Jonathan, Beau and Blair to get behind the wheel of the world’s biggest car entertainment show.”
