According to Deadline, the show, produced by MGM Alternative and 72 Films, is set to launch on November 10, and it has already generated significant buzz thanks to the involvement of Brian Cox (best known for his role in Succession) as The Controller.
James Bond: Road to a Million, featuring Brian Cox, is a new reality competition coming to Amazon.
In the teaser for the upcoming reality show, Cox stands tall as the formidable mastermind behind the challenges players must win to move forward in the game. Delving into the world of James Bond, where cunning villains and charismatic adversaries often take center stage, Cox will oversee the contestants’ journey, dictating their destinations, tasks, and their questions.
Cox’s character has hidden ten vital questions in locations around the world, and contestants can only unlock them by successfully completing Bond-inspired challenges. With this exhilarating premise, the show promises to push the physical strength and mental resilience of the participants to their limits, much like the iconic secret agent, James Bond, who often finds himself pushed to the brink.
As adventurous as 007: Road to a Million sounds, it’s also canon to the franchise (kind of) as longtime James Bond producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson are signed on to the project.
