Christopher Webster [Cathode Ray Mission 10.20.09] Tuvalu trailer news scifi drama

If you've been watching Mad Men like me you may have noticed a spot for The Prisoner popping up now and again during the commercial breaks. I always kind of thought that the spot was sucking hard and really lacking something. Well now, thanks to io9, who scored the exclusive full trailer, we've got a waaaay better look at the channel's reboot. Hell, even quietearth admitted it looked alright and he's been on the fence about this one for ages.

A man, known as Six, finds himself inexplicably trapped in The Village with no memory of how he arrived. As he explores his environment, he discovers that his fellow inhabitants are identified by number instead of name, have no memory of any prior existence, and are under constant surveillance. Not knowing whom to trust, Six is driven by the need to discover the truth behind The Village, the reason for his being there, and most importantly -- how he can escape.

The miniseries premieres on November 15 and runs for three nights straight.

Watch "Number Two" (McKellen) as he messed with "Number Six" (Jim Caviezel) in the full trailer after the break.

might be good... the lighting & technical aspects of the trailer don't fill me with optimism, tho... and no Rover?

are you blind?
rover is clearly in the trailer AND in the poster
the earlier clips had me worried but this trailer does look good
i'd personally prefer it to be a proper longer series, like eight hours or so
