JIM CAVIEZEL, JAMIE CAMPBELL-BOWER & LENNIE JAMES DESCEND ON COMIC CON 2009 TO PRESENT AMC'S EPIC MINI-SERIES "THE PRISONER"

"The Prisoner" Panel Event and Exclusive Sneak Preview Take Place Friday, July 24th at 11:30am

Highly Anticipated Six-Part TV Event Premieres in November on AMC

NEW YORK, NY � July 6, 2009 � Stars of AMC's highly anticipated mini-series "The Prisoner," including Jim Caviezel (The Passion of the Christ, Thin Red Line, Pay It Forward), Jamie Campbell-Bower (Sweeney Todd, The Twilight Saga: New Moon) and Lennie James ("Jericho") descend on Comic Con 2009 for a panel event and exclusive sneak preview of the highly anticipated six-part series. "The Prisoner" panel, scheduled for Friday, July 24 at 11:30am, also features "The Prisoner" writer Bill Gallagher (Conviction, Clocking Off) and AMC's Vlad Wolynetz, vice president of production, and will be moderated by producer and director Robert Meyer Burnett. "The Prisoner," a re-imagination of the 1960s cult classic created by the late Patrick McGoohan, premieres this November on AMC.

During the hour-long event, Burnett will lead panelists in a discussion about their personal experience making "The Prisoner," shooting the series in Namibia and South Africa, and the various themes explored in the re-imagination, among other topics, followed by an exclusive first look at the mini-series, and a Q&A session with attendees.

"The Prisoner" panel will be complemented by a number of on-the-ground activities taking place throughout Comic Con:

Attendees will have an opportunity to obtain their own Village identity by visiting "The Prisoner" booth to pick-up an official Village ID badge, on which they will be identified by number only.

AMC will distribute a mini comic book created by Marvel Comics, based on the mini-series first hour.

AMC will distribute limited edition items featuring the original series' iconic taglines such as "Be Seeing You," "You Only Think You're Free" and "I Am Not A Number."

About "The Prisoner"

"The Prisoner" tells the story of a man, "Six" (Caviezel), who wakes up to find himself inexplicably trapped in a mysterious and surreal place, The Village, with no memory of how he arrived. As he frantically explores his new environment, he discovers that Village residents are identified by number, have no memory of any prior existence, and are under constant surveillance. The Village is controlled by one man - the sinister and charismatic "Two" (Ian McKellen). Throughout the series, "Six" and "Two" are locked in a battle of wits, as "Six" challenges the oppressive nature of The Village and struggles to learn the truth behind it.

"The Prisoner" is AMC's second original mini-series and combines a wide range of genres, including espionage, thriller and sci-fi, into a unique and compelling drama. The six part mini-series will reflect the same key elements of paranoia, surveillance, liberty, and socio-political commentary seen in McGoohan's enigmatic original.

AMC co-produced "The Prisoner" with UK producer Granada and ITV. Granada International will distribute the series worldwide. Produced by Michelle Buck and Damien Timmer of Granada, the new series is written by Bill Gallagher and directed by Nick Hurran (It's a Boy Girl Thing, Little Black Book).
