A Second Season of James May's Travelogue Will Film in the U.S. and Launch on Amazon Prime Video Next Year

James May: Our Man in the USA will be produced by Plum Pictures and New Entity and will launch exclusively on Prime Video in over 240 countries and territories

LONDON, UK, 26 August 2021 - Following the success of Our Man in Japan, James May: Our Man in the USA will premiere exclusively on Amazon Prime Video in 2022 in over 240 countries and territories.

James will set off on an epic 4,000-mile fact-finding mission across the United States of America; a land of mountains and bayous, skyscrapers and deserts, a collision of a myriad viewpoints, cultures, and lifestyles. Journeying from Cape Cod to Seattle, via New York, Detroit, Nashville, New Orleans, Houston, Santa Fe, Las Vegas, and LA, he'll put the disappointment of 1776 behind him as he immerses himself completely in the real American way of life to discover its true flavour [sic].

"I'm setting off with two objectives: To go West, like the settlers and prospectors of old, and not get fat on American breakfasts in the process," said James May. "As a man brought up (raised) on U.S. cop shows and Hollywood films, I still believe that everything in America must be better; from the size of their fridges to the uncanny alignment of their teeth. But is it?"

"Exhilarating as James exploring his own kitchen is, we are thrilled to be getting Our Man back on the road for another adventure," said Dan Grabiner, Head of UK Originals, Amazon Studios. "Our Man in Japan's anti-travelogue approach was a hit with Prime Video audiences, and we are so excited to finally be able to re-assemble this brilliant team for their next journey."

The series will reunite the team behind the first series, including BAFTA-nominated series director Tom Whitter (James May's Toy Stories, Cars of the People) and executive producer Will Daws (James May's Toy Stories, Amazing Spaces).

James May: Our Man in the USA will join the thousands of TV shows and movies in the Prime Video catalogue, including UK-produced Amazon Original series such as Good Omens, Clarkson's Farm, The Grand Tour, and All or Nothing: Tottenham Hotspur, as well as forthcoming UK-produced Amazon Originals Series The Rig, The Devil's Hour, Mammals, All or Nothing: Arsenal, Jungle, Lovestruck High, Anansi Boys, and The Power; hit movies like Coming 2 America, Golden Globe-winner and Academy Award-nominee Borat Subsequent Moviefilm, Academy Award-winning movie Sound of Metal, Golden Globe- and Academy Award-nominated movie One Night in Miami... ; and critically-acclaimed global Amazon Original series including Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan, The Boys, Homecoming, and The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, all available on Prime Video at no extra cost for Prime members. Prime Video also offers Prime members in the UK live coverage of Premier League football matches, Autumn Nations Cup international rugby union tournament, plus exclusive coverage of ATP Tour and US Open tennis.
