A James Bond spin-off TV series is coming to Amazon Prime Video - and you could be in it.

Amazon recently acquired MGM, leaving Bond fans hopeful of a small screen outing for 007 at the streaming service, but now they'll have the chance to be immersed in the spy's glamorous world themselves.

007's Road to a Million is a new contest for Amazon from British company 72 Films (behind The Rise of the Murdoch Dynasty and All or Nothing: Tottenham Hotspur) and Bond producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson.

According to Variety, contestants will take part in a race around the world which covers locations featured in the Bond films and where two-person teams will have to take on physical challenges as well as answering questions to move on to the next place in the hope of winning £1 million.

Excitingly, there's still a chance for Bond fans to take part in the global show as castings are currently open at https://shortaudition.net/007roadtoamillion.

The eight-part series will be streamed by Amazon to 240 countries and territories around the world.

CEO of 72 Films David Glover told Variety: "I first had this idea over three years ago. Dan Grabiner and the UK Originals team took it to a whole other level. To be working with Michael Wilson and Barbara Broccoli and the Bond franchise is a privilege and a dream come true."

Last year, Daniel Craig ended his 15-year tenure as James Bond with his final film instalment, No Time To Die.

Speculation is rife over who will be next to be cast in the role previously held by actors including Roger Moore, Sean Connery and Pierce Brosnan.

Former Bridgerton star Rege-Jean Page, Luther's Idris Elba and Mad Max actor Tom Hardy have all been touted as possible replacements ready to step into 007's shoes.
