Titled James May: Oh Cook, the seven-part show will follow the presenter as he attempts 60 recipes he had to learn for his forthcoming cookbook Oh Cook!: 60 easy recipes that any idiot can make.
Each episode will focus on a specific cuisine theme, including pasta, pub classics, Indian, cakes and roasts. The episodes will feature three recipes each, as well as some quick recipes you can rustle up from the stuff knocking about in your cupboard.
According to Amazon, the series will be "from the perspective of someone who can't really cook" and will "show viewers that if you can cook a few things passably well, you can actually cook anything".
This is the second Amazon Prime Video original series May has fronted, following on from his Japanese travel docuseries James May: Our Man in Japan, which was released on the streaming service in January this year.
"I'm delighted to be back working with Amazon Prime Video but in a way you may not have seen me before," said May of his new series.
"I've arrived at the age where I spend most of my day thinking about my next meal, so I made a TV series about it. Cooking your own curry is so much more satisfying than ordering a take-away, even though it won't taste as nice."
James May: Oh Cook will arrive on Amazon Prime Video later this year. The Grand Tour also airs on Amazon Prime Video.
