Behind the scenes of AMC's Prisoner miniseries - VIDEO

It's going to be hard to remake a series as famous and specific as The Prisoner. It was so weird and of its time that they're going to have to do something really different with it. Purists will probably immediately hate it, while people who have never seen the original will wonder what all of the fuss is about.
After the jump is some behind the scenes footage from the six-part miniseries. It features interviews with stars Jim Caviezel, Ian McKellan, Jamie Campbell-Bower, as well as several behind-the-camera people. I didn't realize that the show was filmed in Namibia and in Cape Town, South Africa, which is going to stand-in for New York City (gah). `
This behind-the-scenes stuff is all well and good (and you can find a dozen other videos at AMC's site at the link above), but I'm still waiting to see actual footage from the miniseries. It's one thing to go on and on about the shoot and how great the location was and how you're trying to do something different, but we can't really get into it until we see actual scenes. Cool to see Jericho's Lennie James though.
