Series Info

An imaginative, mesmerizing---and enigmatic---British cult series about a character known only as Number 6 (series creator Patrick McGoohan) who, after angrily resigning from a top-secret organization, is abducted to `The Village,' a high-tech prison disguised as a placid English resort. Although critically acclaimed, `The Prisoner' only ran for 17 episodes, and most of those focused on 6's struggle to learn the identity of his sinister captors and to escape his lush but mysterious compound.
