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.
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.Written by
The idea for the show was originally pitched to the Fox Broadcasting Company in 2003 but was turned down as Fox felt somewhat nervous about the long-term possibilities of such a television series. It was later considered as a possible 10-part mini series, which allegedly drew interest from big names in the film industry such as Steven Spielberg and Bruce Willis. However, the mini series never materialized. Following the huge popularity of serialized prime-time television series such as 24 (2001) and Lost (2004), the Fox Network had a change of heart and backed the production in 2004. See more »
The series takes place over a 1 year period, all in 2005, yet the model of Cadillac Escalade being driven is at the earliest a 2007 model. See more »
A perfectly plotted series showing turn after turn and greatly it's almost unpredictable. Acting of every character is mind blowing. Detailed execution, covering the next move, thinking beyond imagination of the writers, made it one of the best ever atleast for me. Just one drawback was that after 3rd series it seem little stratched somewhere. Rest all, high five.
