JAMES BOND Reality Series On The Way From Amazon and EON Productions

Now that its acquisition of MGM is official, Amazon is wasting no time getting into the James Bond business by announcing the streaming reality series, 007's Road to a Million.

According to the official description, the reality series will "see contestants competing in a global adventure to win a $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 wil compete in two-person teams — must correctly answer questions hiden in different locations around the world in order to advance to the next challenge."

Hmm. Kind of sounds like a cooler version of CBS's The Amazing Race.

Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson of EON and Barry Poznick and Mark Burnett of MGM will serve as producers of the eight-episode series, which has reportedly been in the works for several years before the Amazon/MGM deal was even on the radar. Executive producer David Glover, CEO of 72 Films, offers, "I first had this idea over three years ago. Dan Grabiner and the UK Originals team took it to a whole other level. To be working with Michael Wilson and Barbara Broccoli and the Bond franchise is a privilege and a dream come true."

The only other official James Bond-related production for television has been the '90s animated series James Bond, Jr. Currently, EON, whiich has stated that Bond will remain a big screen franchise, is beginning the search for the next 007 to take over from Daniel Craig.
