The shadow of the old British spy series “The Prisoner” hovers over the new late-night drama “Peace Vote” (TBS, Mon., 12:18 a.m.). Gaku Hamada stars as Hide, a young man with an inferiority complex brought on by his older brother’s fame as the founder of a successful social network.

Hide’s feeling of worthlessness is compounded by sadness when his brother suddenly dies. At the funeral, he is approached by a mysterious stranger who says, “You killed your brother.” Hide passes out and when he awakes discovers he’s been abducted and imprisoned on a ship out in the middle of the ocean. His fellow passengers have all suffered the same fate, and they are all told they are “guilty” and will not be released until they confess to their “crimes.”
