[via press release from FOX]

ANOTHER CHANCE TO CATCH THE "BREAK"-OUT HIT OF THE FALL SEASON WITH AN ENCORE AIRING OF THE TWO-HOUR SERIES PREMIERE OF "PRISON BREAK" THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 1, ON FOX

Pilot Episode Directed by Brett Ratner ("X-Men 3," "Red Dragon," "Rush Hour")

FOX's daring new drama series PRISON BREAK will have a special encore airing of its two-hour premiere this Thursday, Sept. 1 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT). The series premiere, which aired Monday, Aug. 29, delivered a 4.6/12 among Adults 18-49 and won Monday night among virtually all key measures. Over 18 million viewers saw at least part of the premiere, on FOX's highest-rated summer Monday in seven years. PRISON BREAK will have its time period premiere Monday, Sept. 5 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.

PRISON BREAK's series premiere showed substantial momentum, growing every half hour. From the first to the last half hour, PRISON BREAK grew +31% among Adults 18-49 (3.9 > 4.6 > 4.9 > 5.1), +38% among Adults 18-34 (3.9 > 4.7 > 5.2 > 5.4) and +18% in Total Viewers (9.4 > 10.7 > 10.9 > 11.1 Mil).

MICHAEL SCOFIELD (Wentworth Miller) is a desperate man in a desperate situation - his brother LINCOLN BURROWS (Dominic Purcell) has been convicted of a sensational murder and is on death row in Fox River State Penitentiary. Despite the evidence against Lincoln, Michael is convinced of his innocence. With no other options and the clock ticking toward the execution, Michael holds up a bank to get himself incarcerated alongside his brother. Once he's inside, we learn that Michael - a structural engineer with the entire blueprints for the prison tattooed over his upper torso - has hatched an elaborate plan to break Lincoln out and prove that he was framed for the crime.

Combining the hope of "The Shawshank Redemption," the camaraderie of "The Longest Yard" and the tense procedure and spectacle of "The Great Escape," the series promises to reveal additional pieces of the puzzle each week as Michael carries out his daring plan to mastermind the ultimate prison break - and solve the far-reaching national-scale conspiracy that landed him and his brother there in the first place.

PRISON BREAK is created, written and co-executive-produced by Paul Scheuring ("A Man Apart"). Brett Ratner directs the pilot episode and serves as executive producer, along with Marty Adelstein, Neal H. Moritz, Dawn Parouse and Matt Olmstead. Michael Watkins is co-executive producer and directed the series' second hour.
