"I am not a number, I am a free man!"

There are stories circulating that shooting starts in August 2008 of a "Prisoner" remake; six hours/six episode mini-series.

Many have waited a long time for such news, including me! Let's hope, if these rumours are true, the remake "does it right". Here's the article from six of one:

6th June, 2008 - SIX OF ONE EXCLUSIVE - The 2009 mini-series of the The Prisoner will feature six one-hour episodes, all written by Bill Gallagher (Clocking Off; Conviction; Lark Rise to Candleford).
