Patrick MacGoohan Picture


A remake of the Prisoner was on AMC.

In November, AMC will present The Prisoner miniseries, a reinterpretation of the British 1960s cult hit series that starred and was co-created by Patrick McGoohan.

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.

Jim Caviezel will play the role of Six; and two-time Oscar nominee Ian McKellen will co-star as Two.

The Prisoner miniseries is a co-production of AMC and ITV Productions; the deal was brokered by Granada International, which holds international distribution rights. Bill Gallagher serves as writer and executive producer, along with Michele Buck, Damien Timmer, Rebecca Keane, and AMC's Charlie Collier, Christina Wayne and Vlad Wolynetz. It is produced by Trevor Hopkins.


The Prisoner:

Patrick McGoohan was known for his "Danger Man" series in England, later became "Secret Agent" for American television. Then "The Prisoner" appeared. It is believed (regardless of any denials) that the main character in the first two shows, John Drake, is the same character in "The Prisoner", as Number 6. He definitely has the same character traits and views. Although Number 6 can be 'any' spy who got tired of the business and wanted out. The problem is, you just can't resign from some careers and you 'can't' leave the Village...
