The Screen Actors Guild was handed a final offer yesterday by the producers (AMPTP) which the SAG was going to review in detail today. Reports say that movie production has already halted, does the same go for TV? Reality TV, like the social disease it is, just keeps going on since it functions outside of these contracts.

TV Junkie is thrilled to learn that AMC is going to go ahead, probably after this whole SAG thing gets worked out, with production on their remake of the classic British series, "The Prisoner" this Fall with a broadcast date in the first half of 2009. "The Prisoner", one of the best TV series ever made, will be remade with Ian McKellen as Number Two (no potty jokes please) and Jim Caviezel as Number Six. No word yet on what original creator Patrick McGoohan thinks of all this.
