Andrew "Andy" Wilman (born 16 August 1962) is an English television producer who is best known as the former executive producer of the Top Gear show, from 2002 to 2015. He was responsible for much of the show's style and humour, along with Jeremy Clarkson. He has also presented segments of the original Top Gear. He is primarily responsible for the creation of The Stig. Wilman and Clarkson were both educated at Repton School.
After the original Top Gear was cancelled by the BBC, Wilman and fellow ex-presenter Clarkson pitched a new format, and succeeded in getting permission for a new show. Apart from Top Gear, Wilman has worked with Clarkson on a number of other television projects. In April 2015, Wilman announced that he had resigned as executive producer of BBC Television's Top Gear after the following Jeremy Clarkson's exit in March 2015, owing to Clarkson's alleged attack on a producer. As of 2016[update] Wilman was scheduled to be the executive producer of an Untitled Amazon motoring show that Clarkson, James May, and Richard Hammond were producing via their company W. Chump & Sons for release via Amazon Video to Amazon Prime customers.
