007 James Bond Reality Show Competition Set For Amazon’s Prime Video

Bestinau got that-

Amazon’s Prime Video has given the go-ahead for its first James Bond TV show in Road to a Million in 007, a Bond-style reality show competition.

As reported by Variety, the eight-part series will be produced by MGM Televsion, The Rise of the Murdoch Dynasty’s 72 Films, and Bond producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson.

Sources have revealed that the project has been in the works at Prime Video for about four years, which would be a long time before Amazon’s $8.45 billion deal buying MGM was announced. Speaking of which, Amazon officially closed the deal to acquire MGM on March 17, 2022, after a legal lawsuit passed.

Production of 007’s Road to a Million will begin later this year and contestants will compete in a global adventure to win a £1 million ($1.3 million) cash prize. The competition will take place in “many of the historic locations featured in the groundbreaking Bond films”, and the “cinematic format” will be a test of intelligence and stamina.

In addition to physical challenges, the two-person teams must answer questions from around the world to advance to the next stage of the adventure. If this sounds like a journey you’d like to take, 72 Films is currently inviting the world to send in their applications for a chance to star on the show and win the ultimate Bond prize.

“I first had this idea over three years ago,” said David Glover, CEO of 72 Films. “Dan Grabiner and the UK Originals team took it to a whole other level. Working with Michael Wilson and Barbara Broccoli and the Bond franchise is a privilege and a dream come true.”

This news about Road to a Million from 007 comes as the James Bond franchise enters a new era without Daniel Craig after his final appearance in No Time to Die. Broccoli has confirmed that the search for a new Bond would begin this year.

Broccoli and Wilson also previously said fans shouldn’t expect a James Bond TV spinoff series on Amazon. So while we may not be getting a traditional Bond series anytime soon, the reality show world will soon be shaken, not stirred.
