The classic '60s spy series gets a new lick of paint in this modern-day re-imagining. Jim Caviezel and Sir Ian McKellen star in this tale of a government agent who wakes up to find himself trapped on a mysterious remote island. If you miss out on The Prisoner you should be locked up! Episodes Comprise: 1. Arrival 2. Harmony 3. Anvil 4. Darling 5. Schizoid 6. Checkmate The six one-hour episodes tell the story of a man who finds himself trapped in a mysterious and surreal place known as The Village, with no memory of how he arrived there. As he frantically explores his environment, he discovers that its inhabitants are identified by number instead of by name and have no memory of a prior existence or outside civilization. Not knowing who to trust, Number Six is driven by the desperate need to discover the truth behind The Village and, more importantly, how he can survive and escape to his previous life. The Village is controlled by one man - the sinister and charismatic Number Two (Ian McKellen). In each new episode, Six (Jim Caviezel) and Two are locked in a battle of wits, as Six challenges the oppressive nature of The Village and battles against his captors. McKellen and Caviezel are joined by an all-star supporting cast including Hayley Atwell (The Duchess, Brideshead Revisited), Jamie Campbell-Bower (New Moon, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows), Ruth Wilson (Jane Eyre, Small Island), Lennie James (Outlaw) and Rachael Blake (Clapham Junction). In the 1960s, The Prisoner helped permanently alter the scope of the fantasy genre. Through the work of Patrick McGoohan - who created, produced, wrote and directed the series, and starred in the lead role of Number Six - The Prisoner is widely viewed as one of the most well regarded and intriguing cult TV series ever created. While the original series, which debuted in 1967, was a riff on Cold War politics, the Prisoner in 2010 will reflect 21st century concerns and anxieties, such as liberty, security and surveillance, yet also showcase the same key elements of paranoia, tense action and socio-political commentary seen in McGoohan's enigmatic original.
