Amazon is the new home of James Bond. Ever since the US tech giant swallowed MGM, fans have been wondering what the future holds for agent 007.
Variety now reported that a 007 style game show series is in the works. The eight-part series will be produced by Britain’s 72 Films (“The Rise of the Murdoch Dynasty,” “All or Nothing: Tottenham Hotspur”) in co-operation with Bond producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson, along with MGM Television.
Production on “007’s Road to a Million” will begin later this year, and the new show will launch on Prime Video in more than 240 countries and territories. Casting is underway and applicants in the UK are being invited to send in submissions.
The show will see contestants competing in a global adventure to win a £1 million ($1.3 million) cash prize. Filmed in many of the historic locations featured throughout the seminal Bond films, the “cinematic format” will be a test of intelligence and endurance. In addition to passing physical obstacles, the contestants — who will compete in two-person teams — must correctly answer questions hidden in different locations around the world in order to advance to the next challenge.
