The series, called Life With Brian, is about a case of mistaken identity and a wandering hit man who travels the length and breadth of the country ‘taking out’ the people who set him up.
In spite of being behind bars, Alan Smithee has managed to film ‘on location’ throughout the UK from Scotland to Cornwall.
A prison spokesman said: “We’ve no idea how he’s doing it. We search his cell at least half a dozen times a day and can find no camera equipment, lights, microphones or anything.
“He must be like Superman or the Flash to get around so quickly. We’ve no idea how he gets out his cell. We’ve CCTVs on it 24 hours a day and he never seems to move.”
Amazon and Netflix are bidding for the rights after the pilot episode aired on YouTube. An Amazon spokesperson said: “He must be using high-end photo and editing equipment. You don’t get quality like this with an iPhone.”
When asked how he was managing to hide so much large and bulky equipment, the prison spokesman said:” Well, if he hides it ‘in his person’ we have no authority to remove it.”
The pilot episode has been seen by 1.3m viewers. It promises seven further episode and even hints at a second series.
We were unable to interview Alan Smithee. The prison said he was “unavailable”. One of his prison mates said he was “on location”
