Prison Break (FOX 2017, Dominic Purcell, Wentworth Miller)

Prison Break is back and ready for its biggest escape yet. Original series stars Wentworth Miller, Dominic Purcell, Sarah Wayne Callies, Amaury Nolasco, Robert Knepper, Rockmond Dunbar and Paul Adelstein are reunited for an all-new adventure spanning the globe and featuring the signature thrills and cliffhangers that were hallmarks of the original series when it aired on FOX from 2005-2009.

The original action drama centered on Michael Scofield (Miller, “The Loft”), a young man determined to save his convicted brother, Lincoln Burrows (Purcell, “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow”), from death row by hatching an elaborate plan to escape from prison.

In the all-new event series, filmed on location in Morocco, clues surface that suggest a previously thought-to-be-dead Michael may be alive. Lincoln and Sara (Sarah Wayne Callies, “Colony,” “The Walking Dead”), Michael’s wife until he was assumed dead, reunite to engineer the series’ biggest escape ever, as three of Fox River State Penitentiary’s most notorious escapees, Sucre (Nolasco, “Telenovela”), T-Bag (Knepper, “Heroes”) and C-Note (Dunbar, “The Mentalist”), are pulled back into the action.
