In 2009 AMC will be premiering their reinterpretation of the highly influential 1960s cult classic THE PRISONER.

In support of the recently announced mini-series, AMC launched a mysterious grassroots teaser effort at Comic Con this past weekend.

Attendees were provided with cryptic puzzle cards, which when decoded drove participants to a site (SeekTheSix.com) where they were tasked with ‘seeking the six’ in order to reveal the secret behind the campaign.

In addition, transparent stickers with a number “6” were placed in unusual places including ceilings, floors and even restroom mirrors.  In the afternoons, “Seek the Six” sky-writing was seen above the convention center. The convention floor was also populated with dozens of numbered men in black suits who randomly uttered the iconic phrase “I Am Not A Number”, but refused to offer any clues to their purpose other than “the truth is right beside you”.

The Prisoner remake series has a new lead actress.

“I’m about to go to Namibia to shoot ‘The Prisoner’ with Ian McKellan and Jim Caviezel,” revealed 27-year-old British beauty Hayley Atwell to MTV on Monday. “It’s a remake of a very strange 1960’s cult sci-fi classic with Patrick McGoohan.”

For those of you who aren’t down with Number Six, “Prisoner” told the story of a former British secret agent held captive in a mysterious village, as authorities tried to break his will. The trippy storylines often included hallucinations, mind control, and a lot of references to “hooks” and “crooks.”
