According to a report, the British “James Bond” inspired game show is coming from 72 Films and MGM Alternative, in collaboration with James Bond producers EON productions. It will be launching later this year exclusively on Prime Video worldwide.
The “Succession” alum Brian Cox, who is just coming out of playing his villainous character Logan Roy in the series, will be joining the show “The Controller.”
To spice up the excitement whilst keeping to the James Bond theme, the game show will be shot in famous James Bond locations including the Scottish Highlands, Venice and Jamaica.
Cox will be an “enigmatic” emcee, “who controls the fate of the contestants,” with hus character set to become more “villainous and cultured” as the contestants advance through the challenges.
“I got to see how ordinary people would cope with being on a James Bond adventure. As they travel the world to some of the most iconic Bond locations, it gets more intense and nail-biting.
I enjoyed my role as both villain and tormentor, with license to put the hopeful participants through the mangle,” Cox said of the upcoming Amazon reality series.
