Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May have been filming the first season of the highly anticipated Amazon Original Series, The Grand Tour, in far-flung locations across the globe. The studio portion of the show takes place in a traveling tent, in locations ranging from Johannesburg to California, Whitby, England to Rotterdam, and Lapland to Nashville.
Amazon is also announcing the launch of The Grand Tour skill for Alexa-enabled devices including the Amazon Echo and Echo Dot. In The Grand Tour skill, featuring the voices of hosts Clarkson, Hammond and May, customers will receive a new clue every Thursday about what to watch for in the upcoming episode of the series, and new trivia will be released each Saturday. Fans who are truly “on the tour” and answer all three questions right will unlock exclusive video content. US customers who enable and use the skill between November 19 and December 22 will be entered in a weekly random drawing for a chance to receive a $25 gift card from Amazon.com. In addition, customers also can engage with The Grand Tour presenters via specially-recorded alarms and additional content. Here’s a hint—ask Alexa if she was invited on the Grand Tour.
The Grand Tour, which has been shot in 4K Ultra High Definition, will launch Friday, November 18 exclusively for Prime members, with new episodes releasing weekly for 12 weeks. Prime members can watch The Grand Tour via the Amazon Video app for TVs, connected devices including Amazon Fire TV, mobile devices and online at Amazon.com/thegrandtour.
