In this week’s round-up, new non-fiction series are slated to debut across Amazon Prime, Esquire Network and Bravo Media.

NBCUniversal-owned network Bravo Media will expand its Married to Medicine franchise by introducing viewers to a group of women working in the largest medical center in Texas.

Produced by FremantleMedia North America, Married to Medicine Houston will follow five women – either doctors or the wives of physicians – as they navigate and balance their social circle, marriages and the medical world. Married to Medicine Houston bows with back-to-back episodes on Nov. 11 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Bravo Media.

Elsewhere, Esquire Network is getting its hands dirty with the Critical Content-made automotive series Joyride.

The 6 x 30-minute series will feature four celebrity car fanatics – rapper T-Pain, professional racer Brian Vickers and actors Mischa Barton and Oliver Trevena – as they test drive a range of innovative and vintage vehicles while putting their driving skills to the test to determine the episode’s winning car. Joyride premieres on Esquire Network on Nov. 15 at 10 p.m. ET/PT.

Streaming giant Amazon Prime is gearing up to unleash its highly anticipated motoring series The Grand Tour on the world beginning Nov. 18.

Hosted by Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May, the Amazon Original Series – which began filming in February –features the former Top Gear presenters as they host each episode from different locations across the globe each week, with pre-recorded segments filmed in front of a live studio audience housed within a giant tent. The series will touch down in California and Nashville in the U.S.; Johannesburg, South Africa; Dubai, United Arab Emirates; Rotterdam, Netherlands; Lapland, Finland; Stuttgart, Germany; Yorkshire, England; and Scotland.

The trio (pictured) of presenters has previously committed to three series of the traveling motoring format, which is produced by long-time executive producer Andy Wilman.
