‘The Great Escapists’ – Amazon Releases Trailer & Jan Premiere Date For Richard Hammond & Tory Belleci Desert Island Show
Amazon has released a trailer and announced a January premiere date for ‘The Great Escapists‘, a new series featuring ‘The Grand Tour’s Richard Hammond and ‘MythBusters’ Tory Belleci, stranded together on a desert island.
‘The Great Escapists’ sees Hammond and Belleci shipwrecked in mysterious circumstances, stranded on a remote yet beautiful desert island. Rather than sitting around waiting to be rescued, the pair decide to take matters into their own hands as they use all of their engineering and expert scientific prowess, not only to survive, but to construct an out-of-this-world, paradise island playground.
The series follows Richard and Tory as they masterfully construct their exotic wonderland using what they have from the shipwreck and what they can find on the island. Each episode will see them take on huge feats of engineering to achieve epic builds in what will be a once in a lifetime operation for the two lovers of science, engineering and making the impossible, possible. The duo’s hare-brained builds will range from island hopping vehicles to a supersized hydro-power waterwheel.
The series comes from Hammond’s Chimp Production, with Gareth Cornick (‘Stargazing Live’, ‘You Have Been Warned’) exec producing.
‘The Great Escapists‘ Season 1 premieres Friday, 29th January 2021 on Amazon Prime Video.
