Prime Video is sending James May to India for the third instalment of his Our Man In… series, produced by Plum Pictures.

Following on from James May: Our Man in Japan, and James May: Our Man in Italy, the new series will take May on an epic adventure across 3,000 miles of the Indian subcontinent.

Starting his journey in Mumbai, May will travel north through Udaipur to experience Holi festival, before he heads into Rajasthan. He’ll then cover Delhi, Agra and Jaipur—the so-called “golden triangle”—before following the Ganges eastwards to the holy city of Varanasi. Next, a trip to Kolkata, followed by the Himalayan foothills around Darjeeling, before ending his journey in the natural wonders of the Sundarbans.

The series will reunite the team behind the previous 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, George Clarke’s Amazing Spaces).

May will also continue his gastronomical adventures in the kitchen as he attempts to make cuisines from around the world in Oh Cook! Series Two, set to launch 24 May on Prime Video.

“I’ve been to India before, and it’s mesmerising. I can’t wait to go back for Series Three of Our Man In…,” said James May. “And for Oh Cook! fans, it’s also the perfect opportunity to perfect my daal.”

“We asked Our Man In… fans what they would like to see next, and this fabulous journey was the clear favourite,” said Dan Grabiner, head of Originals, UK & Northern Europe, Prime Video. “We can’t wait to get James and the team back out there for another adventure.”

Both series will be produced by Plum Pictures and will launch exclusively on Prime Video in over 240 countries and territories.
