Report: Fox orders new 'Prison Break' prison drama
UPI News Service, 04/15/2005
Fox will add a prison drama to its prime time schedule, possibly as early as this fall, Daily Variety said Friday.
The paper said the network has ordered 13 episodes of "Prison Break" -- about a man who intentionally goes to prison as part of a plan to help his brother break out of death row. The project is described as a cross between "24" and "Escape from Alcatraz."
