Crime/Suspense, Tuesdays 10PM
Engineer Michael Scofield’s (Wentworth Miller) brother Lincoln (Dominic Purcell) is on death row for an assassination and is scheduled to meet the Grim Reaper in a few months. Michael, of course, is convinced that his brother is innocent. So, he holds up a bank to get incarcerated alongside his brother! Once inside, he maps out an elaborate plan to break out of prison.
Actor Stacy Keach (who portrays Warden Henry Pope) was himself incarcerated for several months in a British prison for drug offenses in the 1980s. The Warden of that prison would serve as the basis for Warden Pope.
