One of the panels I couldn't hit up at this year's Comic-Con was for AMC's remake of the 1960s British miniseries The Prisoner. Luckily, the footage from the panel — nine minutes of it! — is now online for us all to enjoy.
I'll be honest: I'm not familiar with the original miniseries, and I barely have a clue what's happening in this preview. That said, it definitely looks intriguing, and I'll be curious to tune in when The Prisoner premieres this Fall.
Here's what I can tell: The miniseries focuses on a man known only as Number Six (Jim Caviezel), who wakes up and finds himself in a surreal place called "The Village." Everyone there is a number, enjoying life in The Village but lacking any memory of their lives before. Number Six, however, suspects that something else — maybe something sinister — is going on, and he sets out to learn the true story behind The Village. That brings him into contact with Number Two (Ian McKellan), an authority on Village life who seems to want to keep Number Six from learning too much.
This six-hour version of The Prisoner will begin airing in November. Will you be watching? To check out the extended preview, just read more.
