Amazon has greenlit a new docuseries featuring chef Hannah Grant exclusively for Prime Video.

The untitled Amazon Original Series is about the athletes competing in the 104th Tour de France and the food that keeps them alive. It follows Grant as she and her crew source and prepare healthy 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 The Grand Tour Cookbook, goes behind the scenes to show audiences what it takes to maintain Grant’s Michelin star-level cooking standards balanced with the dietary needs of professional athletes. During the Tour de France, 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 is executive produced by Grant and Christof Bove and is produced by Junto Entertainment.

“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 Bove, in a statement. “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.
