You know how Amazon recently acquired MGM, and with it the James Bond franchise? Well, as it turns out, this coincides with a new James Bond TV series Amazon had been working on for a long while before the deal happened. What is interesting about this series is that it will be in the form of a reality TV show.
Reality TV For the Secret Agent Man
Variety and GamesRadar+ have just reported that Amazon is doing a James Bond reality TV show in the near future. This reality TV show will apparently be called 007’s Road to a Million. The show will be an 8-part series with 72 Films (The Rise of the Murdoch Dynasty, All or Nothing: Tottenham Hotspur) as the production company. Bond guardians Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson, along with MGM Television, will help produce this series, and hopefully, keep this reality show feeling more or less like a Bond film. At least, as much as you can make any reality TV show feel like it.
007’s Road to a Million: Details
As for what this reality TV show will entail? Well apparently, 007’s Road to a Million will consist of random people going on a “global adventure” in order to win a £1 million (about $1.32 million USD) cash prize. The contestants will compete in teams of two (unlike the usually solo Bond, ironically) in tests of “intelligence and endurance”. These tests will consist of not only “physical obstacles” (no specifics), but also of answering questions hidden in various locales around the world. Speaking of that actually, it seems that the show will take place in many historic locations around the world featured in the various James Bond films. This will be a treat for Bond fans.
You can, in fact, apply for 007’s Road to a Million as a contestant here. Or if you just want to watch contestants try to emulate the likes of Sean Connery, Pierce Brosnan, and Daniel Craig; you can watch it on Amazon Prime Video when it comes out.
Unfortunately, we don’t have a release date for you yet. Tune in later to find that out, if you want to watch this James Bond reality TV show.
