Prime Video has given the green light for a new competitive series based on none other than Bond. James Bond

The famous fictional British spy will be the centerpiece of an eight-part adventure series, 007‘s Road to a Million, in which contestants compete for a prize of £1 million (or $1.3 million), according to the streaming service. To progress through the show, contestants working in teams of two must overcome physical obstacles and answer questions hidden in locations around the world. The show is filmed in historic locations in Bond movies.

Britain’s 72 films will produce along with MGM Television and Bond film producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson. The show is now casting contestants, so this could be your mission if you choose to shake things up (not stir things up).

Shooting will begin later this year, but it is not yet known when the show will air.

Last week, Amazon closed its $8.45 billion deal to acquire MGM, the film studio that oversees the James Bond franchise. Prime Video says the show has been in the works for nearly four years and is unrelated to the Amazon-MGM deal.
