A new series titled The Great Escapists is set to launch on January 29 on Amazon Prime Video. Starring Richard Hammond and Tory Belleci, the show is about two men shipwrecked together on a desert island and their survival. One afternoon Richard and Tory, on a fishing adventure, inadvertently venture into deep waters, just as the storm of the century closes in. Blown hundreds of miles off course they crash land on a deserted island.
Alive but with a boat beyond repair, Tory and Richard quickly realise that the boat’s components could become key to their survival and ultimate escape. Surrounded by deadly currents and tides, a makeshift raft would be suicidal, so rather than waiting to be rescued, the pair decide to take matters into their own hands.
