Since announcing their plans to present in 2009 a new miniseries of The Prisoner starring Ian McKellen and Jim Caviezel, AMC TV has been embracing all thing related to The Prisoner. Earlier this year they made episodes of the 1960s classic freely available for online viewing. A while back, they also started a Prisoner blog.
The latest entry in that blog is a set of the original 1960s Production Design Sketches for The Prisoner, drawn by the series’ Art Dicretor, Jack Shampan.
