Alain Weill from RMC and President of NextRadio TV said, “I’m pleased to announce a French version of Top Gear for RMC Découverte and it’s a great honour to be working with BBC Worldwide France to produce the format. Top Gear UK is already a success on our channel and is delivering its best channel ratings since its launch.”
Local versions of Top Gear already air in South Korea and USA and there will be a Chinese version launching later this year.
Top Gear is the latest British format to travel across the Channel. BBC Worldwide France has a successful history of producing local formats in France including Dancing with the Stars, The Great Bake Off, Sewing Bee, The Weakest Link and most recently, Antiques Roadshow.
