It Turns Out Apple Really, Really Wanted To Sign The Former Top Gear Trio


Any other suitors we didn't know about?

The bidding war began the moment it was announced Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond, and James May were done with Top Gear for good. Everyone wanted to sign them to star and create the ultimate car show. As we all know, Amazon won that battle, beating out Netflix, ITV, and Sky. But it turns out the trio had another suitor that was more than willing to bend over backwards to get them to sign on the dotted line. That would be Apple.

According to an exclusive report from Variety, Apple made “an unprecedented bid” for the three, indicating the company intends to do original programming of its own in the near future. Having these three onboard with the debut show would have been quite something, Apple must have figured. Ultimately, Jeff Bezos outmaneuvered Tim Cook and the rest is now history.
