The Prisoner Remake Details
From a press release:
AMC will premiere its six-part mini-series “The Prisoner” on Sunday, November 15 from 8 - 10pm ET/PT, featuring the series’ first two episodes back-to-back. A reinterpretation of the 1960s cult classic, “The Prisoner” will air over three consecutive nights, with two episodes each evening, from 8-10pm ET/PT.
I’m not at all excited by this. Either they try and stick to the original series, and fail because it was genius (but bonkers), or completely “re-imagine” it, in which case why not make an original series?
I haven’t heard when it will be shown in the UK, although it’s co-produced with ITV so presumably it will be.
“The new Village is located in a desert tropical area instead of Wales.” Not the same.
