Amazon has greenlit a competition show based on the James Bond franchise, which recently became part of the retail giant’s empire followings it acquisition of MGM.
007’s Road To A Million is being produced by 72 Films in the UK and will have Bond producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson attached.
The eight-parter is from MGM Television and will see contestants working in pairs while they traverse the globe in a Bond-esque adventure, with the winner securing a £1m ($1.33m) prize.
The teams of pairs must successfully pass missions and answers questions to move onto the next location and take on the next challenge.
The show’s greenlight comes less than a month since Amazon formally closed its deal for MGM, although the adventure series was in the works before talk of an acquisition had entered its earliest stages. Variety broke the news.
The UK programme will be made available globally via Amazon Prime Video, with casting now underway.
MGM’s Dom Bird, the former Channel 4 exec, will oversee for the studio while Amazon’s UK chief Dan Grabiner leads for the streamer.
