The notorious and well-known former Top Gear trio – Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May – are currently busy with ‘Clarkson Hammond & May Live‘, earlier knows as Top Gear Live. The team cannot use the ‘Top Gear‘ brand name as the rights for the show belongs to BBC. But the three might be brewing another surprise for their followers. Reports suggest that Clarkson, Hammond and May are in early talks with Netflix, an on-demand Internet streaming media provider, to come out with an all new online motoring show, rumored to be called ‘House of Cars’, to compete against BBC’s Top Gear.
Netflix produces a popular American political drama show called ‘House of Cards‘ starring Kevin Spacey as United States congressman Frank Underwood. If the trio does join hands with Netflix, the new show may well be called House of Cars, a nod to the popular drama series. Insiders confirm that “If it goes ahead, they’re planning to call it House of Cars, which is just genius.”
Jeremy Clarkson was suspended earlier this year by BBC following a fracas with a Top Gear producer Oisin Tymon. Clarkson allegedly punched Tymon over some catering arrangements done for the show. Clarkson, however, claims that he did not hit Tymon, but agreed that there was some pushing. While the trio quit the motoring show, BBC plans to retain the Top Gear television show and is looking out for new presenters. But will it be equally fun and entertaining without the trio? Only time will answer that question.
