Bill Gallagher on The Prisoner

On the Writers' Guild website, an interview with screenwriter Bill Gallagher about his new version of The Prisoner (originally created by created by Patrick McGoohan and George Markstein).

Here's the first trailer for The Prisoner. It will be broadcast in America in November but no UK release date has yet been announced by ITV.

Bill also talks about showrunning Lark Rise To Candleford and the rest of his writing career.
Although I learnt the craft of TV writing on fairly conventional series like Casualty and Soldier, Solider my own series have always had a certain strangeness about them. Wokenwell used rather unconventional storytelling and Conviction was about a man coming to terms with his own reality melting down. I like to write things that are mainstream but also a little bit odd. Even Lark Rise To Candleford, which might look very conventional, has quite a few rather unusual storylines.

  1. Judging from the greater part of the American press and public reaction..... Where did it all go wrong I wonder.
