Last November, AMC presented The Prisoner, a 6-part miniseries, a reinterpretation of the British 1960s cult hit that starred Patrick McGoohan as a man confined within a mysterious village.
In this new version, Jim Caviezel stars as Six (McGoohan's character), who 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.
Ian McKellen stars as Two, the enigmatic man who seems to run The Village.
The The Prisoner: The Complete Miniseries DVD set of 3 discs contain the 6 episodes (each running about 50 minutes) that aired on AMC over three consecutive nights, from November 15th through 17th, 2009.
