Due to a political conspiracy, an innocent man is sent to death row and his only hope is his brother, who makes it his mission to deliberately get himself sent to the same prison in order to break the both of them out, from the inside.
Spoiled billionaire playboy Oliver Queen is missing and presumed dead when his yacht is lost at sea. He returns five years later a changed man, determined to clean up the city as a hooded vigilante armed with a bow.
An innocent man is framed for the homicide of the Vice President's brother and scheduled to be executed at a super-max penitentiary, thus it's up to his younger brother to save him with his genius scheme: install himself in the same prison by holding up a bank and, as the final month ticks away, launch the escape plan step-by-step to break the both of them out, with his full-body tattoo acting as his guide; a tattoo which hides the layout of the prison facility and necessary clues vital to the escape.

In a draft pilot dated December 2003; the prison was set to be the Real Life 'Supermax' Wallens Ridge Prison in Virginia, it was supposed to have a 60 minute run time, not the ~40 minutes it eventually did. Scofield's 'back number' was 55241, not 94941. Sucre's friend in the Prison Yard was C-Note, this changed to a different character called 'Wholesale'. Fibonacci was called Hill. Scofield was top of his class at Georgetown not Loyola. Scofield getting caught with the shank after the toilets were blocked off was in this episode, this was switched with Scofield attacking Abruzzi to lead to a second meeting with Pope. See more »
The toilet in cell 40, which is eventually Michael Scofield's cell, has no pipes for the waste exiting or water entering his cell. This toilet could actually not be used. See more »
Some people say this show is for 24 fans... I'm not a 24 fan... As a matter of fact I don't like 24 at all!... But I so love this show... I mean, 1 hour is not enough... Gosh, if you watch one episode you'll be attached to the show... It's great!... It keeps you wandering what's gonna happen... and most of the time you THINK you know what's gonna happen but the twists are so cool!!! You could never imagine that coming... The characters: they have this established personality, they're unique, they're not like the typical criminal, the typical good girl and bad boy... they're completely different... The story lines are awesome too... This show is well written, directed and produced...So I really recommend this show... I love it!
