Amazon Prime has unveiled a trailer for The Great Escapists featuring Salvatore Belechi from “MythBusters” and Richard Hammond from The Grand Tour. The hosts will find themselves on a deserted island.
Belechi and Hammond are shipwrecked, leaving them with nothing. The presenters will need to survive in extreme conditions, creating not only shelters, but also unusual vehicles, a huge hydropower water wheel and much more.
According to Hammond, this project is a desire to advance the genre of science and present it to a new generation. The host is confident that, together with Amazon, they managed to create an ambitious show on an unprecedented scale.
The first season of The Great Escapists will have six episodes. The production is in charge of Chump Productions, founded by Richard Hammond, Jeremy Clarkson and James May.
It will premiere on Amazon Prime on January 29th.
