Succession Emmy winner Brian Cox is back on the small screen, diving into the world of James Bond in the trailer to Prime Video’s forthcoming reality competition show 007: Road to a Million.
The just-released trailer shows nine duos facing globe-trotting adventures worthy of the world’s most famous fictional spy, all in an effort to win 1 million British pounds ($1.22 million).
Cox plays the role of the show’s mysterious Controller, and in character, he explains via voice-over, “I’ve put ordinary people into a James Bond adventure and placed 10 questions around the world. If they find them, answer them, they win a million pounds.”
He adds, “The only thing standing in their way … is me.”
The streaming service explains, “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.”
The trailer teases that competitors will be asked to face great heights, jump out of choppers in the Swiss Alps and tackle other white-knuckle obstacles.
“And I’m only just getting started,” Cox teases at the end of the trailer.
The series hails from EON Productions, the folks behind the James Bond film franchise, so it doesn’t skimp on the iconic music and other trademarks of the films.
007: Road to a Million begins streaming November 10.
