Coming in November 2009, AMC's highly anticipated remake of the cult '60's television series The Prisoner, starring Ian McKellen and Jim Caviezel.

Based on the highly acclaimed 1960s television show, Thomas M. Disch's novelization of The Prisoner has become a cult classic in its own right. A story that combines elements of a spy thriller with the Orwellian tropes of science fiction, The Prisoner follows a former British secret agent who has quit the force, only to find himself trapped in an anonymous place called the Village. Known only as "Number 6," he struggles to maintain his individual identity in the face of the nameless powers-that-be, who use increasingly sophisticated and terrifying methods in order to extract his secrets.

First published in 1967, by an author widely regarded to be a master of the science fiction genre, The Prisoner will appeal to longtime fans of the show as well as those who are discovering it for the first time.
