TEN's programming chief, David Mott, told the Herald Sun, "It's a story in a detention centre about a woman who, wrongly accused, seeks her revenge.
"We're very excited about it. We've looked at Prisoner for some time now and wondered whether it's time to revive the style of that show."
Set in the fictional Wentworth Detention Centre, the show aired for seven years and 692 episodes and was a ratings winner in Australia and the UK until it was cancelled in 1986.
With TEN expanding its reach onto the new sister channel, Eleven, it will be searching for projects to fill out its broadcast schedules. A familiar brand such as Prisoner should be guaranteed to be a short-term ratings winner, at the very least.
