In the first promotional effort, A and E plays out with the stills from the new series which is created by 'Prison Break' alums.
"Breakout Kings", a new drama series coming from the producers of "Prison Break", has released its first teaser on Sunday, October 3 after the season finale of "The Glades". It follows on the efforts of a crack team of ex-cons and U.S. Marshals tasked with tracking down and capturing escaped prisoners.
The newbie was actually a pick-up by FOX before the network backed out and A & E swooned in. Its pilot received a generally favorable review during the upfront presentation but FOX preferred to renew "Lie to Me" and "Human Target" instead. The new home then took in all the 13-episode order with the premiere schedule taking place next year.
"Breakout Kings" is created by "Prison Break" alums Matt Olmstead and Nick Santora. Among the stars are Laz Alonso, Domenick Lombardozzi, Malcolm Goodwin, Jimmi Simpson, Serinda Swan and Brooke Nevin.
