AMC is currently airing my two favorite shows (“Breaking Bad” and “Mad Men”) and I’m  convinced they’re the best things on TV not named “LOST”.  It’s because of this that AMC has made me take notice of anything they choose to do in the future.  Their next television project is a six-part miniseries reinterpretation of the 1960’s cult classic, “The Prisoner”, and stars Jim Caviezel and Ian McKellen.

THR tells us that the miniseries will start airing Sunday Nov. 15 and then AMC will air two episodes each night over three consecutive nights   The original British series followed a British former secret agent who is held prisoner in a mysterious seaside village where his captors try to find out why he abruptly resigned from his job.  I’ve had people recommend  the supposedly trippy series over the years and I do plan on hopefully watching it before this miniseries will air. Anyway, I expect something great with this one.
