NBC's Persons Unknown has been bought by Syfy UK. The short-lived sci-fi mystery, created by Christopher McQuarrie (The Usual Suspects), concerns a group of strangers who wake up to find themselves in a ghost town they can't physically leave. Heavily influenced by The Prisoner (which McQuarrie was once hired to write a movie adaptation of), the show lasted for one season of 12 episodes in summer 2010.
It's not terrible, but it's far from great and... well, okay, it was often terrible. Imagine if Stephen King wrote a very American version of The Prisoner and someone turned it into a disappointing Syfy miniseries. Persons Unknown is on that level. I reviewed the entire series here, if you want to bookmark and follow along with my old reviews.
However, word of warning, despite what producer Remi Aubuchon assured everyone last year, it DOES NOT end after answering all of its questions. It ends on a huge and impudently stupid-crazy cliffhanger, with the majority of questions going unanswered. I don't consider that a spoiler, I consider that fair warning, because the main thing that kept me watching was a promise that everything would be explained... and that promise was broken.
