    Second the motion. Ian McKellan looks like he's really enjoying the role.

    pretty sure it was just a mini series,


    the following is from wikipedia,

    A remake, in the works since 2005,[16] premiered on November 15, 2009 as a miniseries on AMC, in cooperation with British broadcaster ITV.[17][18][19] On 25 April 2008, ITV announced that a new series of The Prisoner would go into production, and in June 2008, that American actor James Caviezel will star in the role of Number 6, with Ian McKellen taking on the role of Number 2 in all six episodes.[20][21][22] As of May 2009 the shooting for the new series was completed with significant plot changes from the original television storyline. The new Village is located in a desert tropical area instead of Wales.

    ..............

    Most blogs/comments I have read on it were very un-kind.
