Breakout Kings

After seeing a scene of this being shot in Toronto I'm excited to watch it - it sounds interesting enough to give it a few hours of my time. That and Laz Alonso is dead sexy!!!
And apparently I'm on someone's radar because I received a full digital press kit from the media company promoting the show and since I'm already looking forward to the show I don't mind sharing the links they sent promoting it.

It Takes A Con To Catch A Con……

A&E Network’s original scripted drama series, “Breakout Kings,” premieres on Sunday, March 6 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 Knowing that there are few things more dangerous than a convict on the run, and tired of outdated methods of law enforcement, veteran U.S. Marshals Charlie DuChamp (Laz Alonso; Avatar, Fast and the Furious 4: Fast & Furious) and Ray Zancanelli (Domenick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 has 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-gangbanger 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?

About the Premiere Episode:

When convicted murderer August Tillman escapes from prison, veteran U.S. Marshals Charlie DuChamp and Ray Zancanelli decide to take an unorthodox approach to fugitive apprehension by forming a special task force comprised of the three most elusive fugitives they have ever captured. Convicts Lloyd Lowery, Philomena Rotchcliffer and Shea Daniels agree to assist in the case in exchange for time off their sentences. While the marshals and cons struggle to adjust to their new partnership, the team knows they must learn to work together before Tillman leaves more bodies in his wake.


  1. Wahh hoo! Looks like great fun! And shot in Toronto? Way cool! (Literally. I hear that actors who go to Toronto in February have to wear angora peter parkas.)

  2. LOL Rox - the scene that we saw being filmed was done back in September, but there was definitely a chill in the air.

  3. That Laz is hot.
