James Bond Competition series ordered on Amazon Prime Video

A handful of private civilians are about to find out if they are James Bond material. Amazon Prime Video has ordered the first officially sanctioned Bond television series, titled “007’s Road to a Million”.

The competition series will follow contestants as they compete on a global journey to win the ultimate prize of over $1 million (it has been set at £1 million, or around $1.3 million). Shot in many of the historic locations featured in landmark Bond films, this cinematic format will be a real test of wits and endurance.

In addition to overcoming physical obstacles, competitors, who will compete in teams of two, must correctly answer questions hidden in different locations around the world to progress to the next challenge.

The series has been in the works for nearly four years. Production is expected to begin later this year.

“007’s Road to a Million” is produced by 72 Films, in collaboration with legendary James Bond producers Michael G Wilson and Barbara Broccoli and MGM Television.

No release date has been revealed. “007’s Road to a Million” will be available to stream on Prime Video.
