ITV previews new Prisoner series, Primeval, Law & Order London
Britian’s ITV has a showreel for their upcoming season, with new content of interest for fans:
- The first video clips I’ve seen for the remake of The Prisoner, starring James Caviezel (The Passion of the Christ) as Number Six and Ian McKellen (X-Men, Lord Of The Rings) as Number Two. You can read more at AMC’s Prisoner production blog, with many entries by Sir Ian himself.
- Law & Order: London, starring Jamie Bamber (Battlestar Galactica) in the traditional younger detective role and Freema Agyeman (Doctor Who, Torchwood, Survivors) in the traditional female DA role. Character names? It’s Law & Order, you know the roles. Although seeing DAs in wigs is a bit weird. At least they kept the "da-dum" sound.
- Clips for season 3 of Primeval.
- A new series called Whitechapel that, as far as I can tell, has nothing to do with Warren Ellis. Unless he’s trying to recreate the Jack the Ripper killings for fun and profit. Which, come to think of it, Warren might do.
And for the obligatory comics connection, they keep using the soundtrack for The Dark Knight over clips. You’d think that soundtrack won an Oscar or someth– oops, sorry. Sore subject?
