Netflix In Talks To Acquire Revamped ‘Top Gear’: Report

Reports surfaced Thursday morning that streaming giant Netflix is in talks with the BBC to acquire some rights on the revamped car show Top Gear. The deal could mirror the one signed by the two companies on Danger Mouse, the BBC’s reboot of the classic children’s animated series. On that show, the BBC retained UK broadcast rights, exclusively at first, with Netflix taking selected international rights. – Ali Jaafar, Deadline Hollywood
