Making of TOP GEAR show???

Hey folks, i remember seeing a preview a few months ago about "The making of top gear". It looked like a new series about the making of the show. I googled for it, all i can find is little random video clips and old articles. Any one know what i'm talking about? maybe it's just a behind-the-scenes show, idk, whatever it is it's pretty recent. Please help!

I really really wanted to like Top Gear USA...its just so bad. The newest Mexico episode was awful. The challenges are just stupid. Honestly, I'd be way happier if they just reviewed cars.

Do they even review cars in TG USA? Last time I watched it, it was filled with stupid challenges to captivate the typical dumb American audience.

I still don't know why they just don't broadcast the UK show the same week in the USA. Production costs would be way cheaper.

yeah, don't worry...it'll be replayed a ton on BBC America.
even if i've seen a show multiple times, i'll have the TG on in the background when working or if nothing else is on will watch again. lol.
