It Takes A Con To Catch A Con

A&E Presents the New Original Drama Series "Breakout Kings"

Starring Laz Alonso, Domenick Lombardozzi, Jimmi Simpson, Malcolm Goodwin, Serinda Swan and Brooke Nevin

Action-Packed Drama Series from the Producers of "PRISON BREAK" Premieres SUNDAY, MARCH 13 AT 10PM ET/PT

PASADENA, CA - JANUARY 7, 2011 - A&E Network will premiere the original scripted drama series, "Breakout Kings" on Sunday, March 13 at 10:00pm ET/PT. From Matt Olmstead and Nick Santora, writers/producers of the hit series "Prison Break," comes "Breakout Kings" a new action-packed ensemble drama following an unconventional partnership between the U.S. Marshals' office and a group of convicts as they work to catch fugitives on the run.

After 72 hours, the odds of finding an escaped prisoner drop to less than five percent. Knowing that there are few things more dangerous than a convict on the run, and tired of outdated methods of law enforcement, veteran U.S. Marshals Charlie Duchamp (Laz Alonso Avatar, Fast and the Furious 4: Fast & Furious) and Ray Zancanelli (Domenick Lombardozzi "The Wire," "Entourage") decide to reject protocol and take an unorthodox approach to their work: using former fugitives to catch current ones.

A&E's new original drama series "Breakout Kings" follows Charlie and Ray as they form a special task force composed of the three most elusive convicts Ray ever captured: Lloyd Lowery (Jimmi Simpson "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia," "Late Show with David Letterman"), a former child prodigy and behaviorist/psychiatric expert who excels in psychoanalysis; Shea Daniels (Malcolm Goodwin, American Gangster), an ex-gang banger who knows how to work the system, both in prison and on the street; and Erica Reed (Serinda Swan Tron: Legacy "Smallville"), a sexy expert tracker who learned her trade from her bounty hunter father. Charlie and Ray also employ the services of Julianne Simms (Brooke Nevin The Comebacks, My Suicide), a civilian who acts as the "funnel" for the group - all information, tips and data go through her.

With each fugitive they apprehend, the closer the team members get to earning their own freedom. Will the "Breakout Kings" wait that long for their reward, or will they try to score by going on the run themselves?

"Breakout Kings" is a production of Fox 21 and Chernin Entertainment. The series is created, written and executive-produced by Matt Olmstead ("Prison Break") and Nick Santora ("Prison Break"). Peter Chernin, Katherine Pope and Gavin Hood (X-Men Origins: Wolverine) also serve as executive producers.
