Amazon Greenlights Untitled Hannah Grant Tour de France Project Exclusively for Prime Video

The Amazon Original Series Follows the First Female Chef at the Famed Grand Tour Cycling Race

SEATTLE - Jun. 26, 2017 - (NASDAQ: AMZN) - Amazon today announced it has greenlit an untitled Hannah Grant Tour de France series for Prime Video. The Amazon Original Series is a documentary adventure series about the incredible athletes competing in the 104th Tour de France and the food that keeps them alive. The series follows Grant, known as the Queen of Performance Cooking among pro cyclists, as she and her crew source and prepare healthy, high-performance meals for Team Orica-Scott's nine riders during the 23-day endurance race that covers 21 stages and 2,200 miles.

The series, inspired by Grant's book The Grand Tour Cookbook, goes behind the scenes at this race-within-a-race, showcasing what it takes to maintain Grant's Michelin star-level cooking standards balanced with the "high octane" dietary needs of professional athletes. During the Tour de France, one of the world's most physically demanding sporting events, the racing team and Grant's entire operation will move daily, starting in Dusseldorf, Germany and ending in Paris for the famous ride through city streets and the finish line at the Champs-élysées. The series will offer unprecedented behind-the-scenes access to one of the largest annual sporting events on the planet that billions around the world watch, featuring a side of the race, the athletes and their support team that many don't even know exists.

"Hannah Grant is a world-class chef who has dedicated her career to fueling some of the world's most incredible athletes, operating under impossible conditions to create cuisine that is gourmet and that also fuels performance," said Conrad Riggs, Head of Unscripted, Amazon Originals. "We are thrilled to give Amazon Prime members an inside look at the organized chaos behind one of the world's most prestigious and intense sporting events, in which Grant and her team thrive."

"It's a rare gift to find a powerful new story angle into a world and event as big as the Tour de France. It's the unprecedented intersection of sports, travel, and food," said Executive Producer Christof Bove. "Our goal is to give Amazon's global audiences an all-access look into the mechanics and passion of this monolithic sporting event. Hannah is part of the vanguard of next generation cooking. She brings with her attitude and insight equal to this world of performance excellence. To survive the Tour, you simply have to be the best of the best."

The series is executive produced by Grant and Bove. The series is produced by Junto Entertainment.

Prime members will be able to stream the series exclusively via the Amazon Prime Video app for TVs, connected devices including Fire TV, mobile devices and online. Members can also download the series to mobile devices for offline viewing at no additional cost to their membership. Hannah Grant's Tour de France will be a global release and available on PrimeVideo.com for Prime Video members in more than 200 countries and territories.
