Danger 5 is an Australian action comedy television series which premiered on SBS One on 27 February 2012. It is set in a bizarre surreal 1960s interpretation of World War II and follows a group of five international spies on a mission to kill Adolf Hitler and thwart his plans of world domination. The second series moves onto the the mid-1980s. The series was created by Dario Russo and David Ashby.
The show takes its influences form a number of 1960/70/80’s television series, often incorporating miniature sets, buildings and vehicles, paying homage to tv shows of the 1970/80s, which used very obvious miniatures.
The jacket that Colonel Chessbridge wears during the “briefing” scenes (black with white trim) is nearly identical to the jacket worn by Number 6 in “The Prisoner” (1967).
