Amazon Prime Instant Video is making another original UK series. As well as Clarkson and co's new car show, it's lining its first original UK drama in the form of 'The Collection'.

The show follows the story of two brothers who work for a prominent Paris fashion house just after the end of World War II.

Showrunner Oliver Goldstick described 'The Collection' as a long-time passion project.

He said: "[The Collection] is an entrepreneurial fable set in a pivotal moment in history, where fashion served as the ultimate vehicle for transformation and re-invention.

"It's the story of a war-scarred family – upstairs and downstairs – tethered together by its success and its secrets."

The series is produced by Lookout Point, the firm that co-produced 'Ripper Street', which originally aired on the BBC.

When the BBC axed 'Ripper Street', Amazon picked it up and commissioned a third series that was subsequently broadcast on the Beeb.

25 per cent of Lookout Point is owned by BBC Worldwide. Lookout Point will also co-produce the upcoming big-budget production of 'War and Peace' with the Weinstein Co.

Amazon isn't the only streaming service to show a UK-based drama next year. Arch rival Netflix also has its sights set on these shores with 'The Crown', a drama exploring The Queen's relationships with some of Britain's most infamous Prime Ministers.
