Iconic Aussie show Prisoner 'reimagined'
A reimagined version of the iconic Australian TV series Prisoner is set to launch on Australian screens in coming months.
Wentworth began filming in Melbourne last year with a cast including Danielle Cormack (Underbelly Razor, Rake), Nicole Da Silva (Rush, East West 101) and and Kate Atkinson (Offspring, Rush).
3AW Entertainment reporter Peter Ford had a sneak peak at the series and says it is much more realistic than its often over-the-top predecessor.
"You've almost got to go in with an open mind. It's not a prequel, it's not a sequel, it seems to be set in the modern day," Peter told Ross and John.
"Many of the names will be very familiar to you but you've almost got to put out of your mind the pre-conceived ideas about those characters,"
"It is actually very realistic and very full on with the language and the sex scenes, so it is obviously a lot grittier than the old Prisoner" he said.
The 10-part series will be shown on Foxtel's SoHo channel.
Ross Stevenson and John Burns entertain listeners with their razor sharp wit and oddball humour every morning. And every day the best segments of their on-air - and sometimes off-air - program are published on 3AW.com.au.
No one's that remembers the original series is still alive so they can take as many liberties as they like. ;)mylene Friday 1 March, 2013 - 8:49 AM
Why do they have to show disrespect to the old characters by using the same name? How can I possibly watch the new show hearing names like Lizzie Birdsworth and Doreen and no think of the old characters? Its plain stupid. Plus its disrespectful to the old actors. They should have used all new names.Ric Flair Thursday 28 February, 2013 - 3:25 PM
