Netflix is looking to hire the famous trio of the popular series Top Gear, battling competitors like ITV and Hulu. ITV and Netflix are the top contenders while Hulu is also trying to get its hands on the deal.

Why Netflix wants the trio

James May, Richard Hammond and Jeremy Clarkson are said to have been in talks with TV networks and online video streaming companies for weeks now to present a new automobile show which will be unscripted and compete with Top Gear, which will be now re-launched with new host Chris Evans. There are reports that the trio is being backed by American talent agency William Morris Endeavor (WME). Andy Wilman, who is the producer of the show, will also reportedly join the trio for the new automotive show.
