James Bond producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson are bringing 007 to the small screen for the first time.

Earlier this year, the duo green-lit a unique TV project, 007’s Road to a Million, which will take the form of a reality adventure series tasking contestants with a range of tasks to win a £1 million prize.

The decision to make moves with the Amazon Prime Video show surprised fans, with bosses previously insisting the franchise belonged solely on the big screen.

Plus, Barbara told Variety: ‘People have always come to us about doing a TV show, [saying,] “Oh, you should do a Bond challenge,” but we always stayed away from it because we didn’t want to put people in danger and have them do dangerous things, because it’s not for members of the public — it’s for trained professionals.’

However, things changed with 72 Films approaching the team with a ‘fun’ but safe idea.

‘It wasn’t going to be dangerous to the participants is the key thing,’ Michael added, with the eight-episode series in production, while Barbara said things are ‘looking really great’.
