This Is What The (Former) Top Gear Trio Wants To Call Their Netflix Show

Hint: It's an automotive twist on an existing Netflix show.

Britain’s Daily Mirror is reporting that Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond, James May and former “Top Gear” executive producer Andy Wilman could be headed to Netflix. This shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone who has followed the trio’s recent troubles, which were sparked by Clarkson getting suspended and subsequently fired from the BBC hit show for punching a producer in the face. A source close to the group says that if the deal goes through the show would be called "House of Cars." Get it?

The show would be a huge coup for Netflix as just about every network in the world has to be after the trio. The UK’s own ITV was said to be in the running but those negotiations reportedly hit the skids as there would be concerns with advertisers. You can’t exactly say a car that you promote during the commercial break sucks. While Clarkson, Hammond and May seem close to finding a new home, the BBC isn't waiting around. The Daily Mirror says the process to find new presenters is entering its final phases. This begs the question: Is the world ready for two versions of the same motoring show?
