Amazon released a new show titled The Great Escapists, staring Richard Hammond (Top Gear, The Grand Tour) and Tory Belleci (Mythbusters) and the pair are on a desert island off the coast of Panama using their combined knowledge to survive, make vehicles all in an effort to get off the island.
The show has six episodes in total, with the whole of series 1 being made available as of today. Each episode is around 45 minutes long.
“It’s a big one, a noise-maker. It’s not often you get to work on something genuinely new, but this is genuinely new because it’s a mash-up of pop science, engineering, survival and drama. It’s two guys off two of the biggest pop science shows ever – myself and Tory Belleci – who’ve been cast away on a desert island. Thanks to their pop science knowledge, they are surviving. Not only surviving but sur-thriving. They wash up on this island then gradually build bits and pieces to help them firstly find food, shelter and water, but then they increasingly build a more and more luxurious place to live with better toys to make their lives better, or great Hooch.”
The Great Escapists is out now on Amazon Prime.
