We couldn’t be more excited to bring you BBC America, which is now available on Roku players and Roku TVs in the United States! With just a few weeks left until the series finale of Orphan Black and a brand new season of Top Gear America premiering this coming Sunday, we know you’ll love what’s in store!
The top-rated science-fiction phenomenon Doctor Who, fan-favourite Orphan Black, ground-breaking unscripted series Top Gear, buzzy and wildly bizarre Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency starring Elijah Wood, as well as the upcoming series Killing Eve from Phoebe Waller-Bridge, and Blue Planet II, the next chapter in the epic story of our planet are just some of the innovative and culturally contagious programmes that can be found on BBC America. Recent events have resulted in the network receiving ten nominations for Emmy awards in recognition of Planet Earth II.
The revamped American spin-off of Top Gear will premiere with three new presenters and eight new episodes, and it will pay homage to the show’s origins in the United Kingdom. Hosts included racing fanatics and veterans of film and television such as William Fichtner, Antron Brown, the world champion of drag racing, and Tom “Wookie” Ford, the best automotive journalist in the United Kingdom. Top Gear America will not only evaluate cutting-edge and unique automobiles, but also classic automobiles that have played an important role in shaping American culture. Top Gear America will put the viewer in the passenger seat alongside the car-obsessed hosts as they race the most incredible vehicles on the scenic highways and historic tracks of the American West. Topics covered will range from the most recent supercars to the most advanced technological advancements in automotive engineering. At the brand-new Top Gear studio and race track in Speed Vegas, a different famous person will be featured each week. This celebrity will compete for the top spot on the leader board. Naturally, the one and only Stig, the enigmatic test driver for Top Gear, will be leaving everyone in his cloud of gasoline smoke behind him.
