The Captive

Show Summary

The Captive is a science fiction thriller web original series created by Stuart Hynson Culpepper and Karin Diann Williams for the Sundance Channel that centers on a young man (Brian Greer) who is randomly and unexpectedly pulled into the dark twisted world of an underground prison despite the fact he knows nothing of why he is there. Done in high-energy short web episodes, The Captive, formerly known as the Prisoner, has its inspiration in Kafka's The Trial as well as the classic series The Prisoner. What happens when a young man is taken from his life and pulled into the depths of an unknown prison only to be harshly interrogated for a crime he has no idea he committed? When he is helped to escape by a mysterious figure known as the Trustee, can he make it out with his life and sanity intact? The Captive has won 2010 People's Voice Webby for Best Drama and 2008 New York Television Festival Award for Best Web Series Pilot.
