AMC TV released a new preview for its upcoming miniseries The Prisoner, based on the British series of the same name that aired from September 1967 through February 1968. This new series stars Ian McKellen and Jim Caviezel and is called a "reinterpretation" of the original.
The Premise: A man, known as "Six," finds himself inexplicably trapped in "The Village" with no memory of how he arrived. As he explores his environment, he discovers that his fellow inhabitants are identified by number instead of name, have no memory of any prior existence, and are under constant surveillance. Not knowing whom to trust, Six is driven by the need to discover the truth behind The Village, the reason for his being there, and most importantly -- how he can escape.
The Prisoner is scheduled to air on AMC TV this November.
At Comic Con in San Diego this week, the network announced an exclusive The Prisoner Comic Con Marvel comic for the series, and released a 9 minute preview for the miniseries, which can be viewed below:
