'Prison Break' writers pen new series 'Break Out Kings'

Posted on

Matt Olmstead and Nick Santora, alums from Fox’s Prison Break team, are back in business with the network, penning a drama called Break Out Kings, which concerns ex-fugitives who are recruited to work as U.S. marshals, according to Variety. The series — which is being described as a procedural set in New York but with potential to move around the country on specific cases — has a script order with a penalty if a pilot is not produced. Gavin Hood, who directed the recent X-Men Origins: Wolverine, is set to direct and produce.
