Steve Jobs was "absolutely certain" that Ken Burns shouldn't be at PBS, Burns told CNBC's "Binge."
The late Apple co-founder and CEO and the legendary documentarian were friends — Jobs' daughter even worked for a while as an intern for PBS, Burns said. But Jobs thought Burns' deal with PBS was "terrible," according to Burns, maker of the famous "The War" series.
"He had his lawyer, you know, talk to my lawyer, Burns said. "And he said, "No... I think you've got a good deal. I think .... you've got this nice niche and you're protected."
