Prison Break Writers to Create New Show
Former Prison Break writers/producers Matt Olmstead and Nick Santora are working on developing a new show for Fox. According to Variety, the show is called “Break Out Kings,” and is described as “a drama project revolving around ex-fugitives who are recruited to work as U.S. marshals.” Variety only gives a few more details about the show:
Network has given the 20th Century Fox TV project a script order with a hefty penalty attached if it doesn’t go to pilot. Olmstead and Santora penned the pilot. Gavin Hood, helmer of “X-Men Origins: Wolverine,” is attached to direct and exec produce.
Project is described as a procedural based in Gotham, but the team will move around the country as it works on specific cases.
Olmstead was the showrunner and exec producer of “Prison Break” for its four-season run on Fox. Santora was a co-exec producer on the show.
