AMC ANNOUNCES "THE PRISONER" MINI SERIES PREMIERE DATE
Released by AMC
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.
Fans can watch all 17 episodes of the original 1960s "The Prisoner" in full screen on www.amctv.com. Each episode of AMC's mini-series will also be available On Demand the day following the linear premiere with select cable operators.
"The Prisoner" tells the story of a man, Six (Caviezel), who wakes up to find himself inexplicably trapped in a mysterious and surreal place, The Village, with no memory of how he arrived. As he frantically explores his new environment, he discovers that Village residents are identified by number, have no memory of any prior existence, and are under constant surveillance. The Village is controlled by one man - the sinister and charismatic Two (McKellen). Throughout the series, Six and Two are locked in a battle of wits, as Six challenges the oppressive nature of The Village and struggles to learn the truth behind it.
"The Prisoner" is AMC's second original mini-series and combines a wide range of genres, including espionage, thriller and sci-fi, into a unique and compelling drama. The mini-series stars Jim Caviezel in the title role of Six; two-time Oscar nominee Ian McKellen as Two; Ruth Wilson in the role of 313; Hayley Atwell as 4-15; Jamie Campbell-Bower as Two's son, 11-12; and Lennie James as 147
