Brian Cox is ‘The Controller’, setting the fiendish challenges for the show’s wannabe double-oh agents.
Marketing teams love a ‘day’, don’t they? With the 5th of October christened “James Bond Day”, commemorating the world premiere of the first big screen Bond outing, it’s also a good moment to drop the teaser for Prime Video’s new Bond themed game show.
Inspired by his onscreen adventures, 007: Road to a Million stars Brian Cox (Succession) as ‘The Controller’.
Here’s the premise for the show:
“The Controller” has hidden 10 questions around the world for each pair of contestants, who have a chance of winning £1,000,000. To reach these questions, the pairs face Bond-inspired challenges, which push their physical strength and mental reserves to the limit. Each question is worth an increasing amount of money, and if answered correctly, they bank the cash and continue to the next question. If they get it wrong, their journey is over.
At first glance, it looks like an impossibly high stakes fusion of Who Wants To Be a Millionaire and The Krypton Factor!
Packed into that teaser are some of the show’s global locations, including the Scottish Highlands, Chile’s Atacama Desert, Venice and the Swiss Alps.
007: Road to a Million is a collaboration between Amazon Studios, EON Productions, 72 Films and MGM Alternative.
The show launches globally at Prime Video on 10th November, 2023.
