Breakout Kings - T-Bag from Prison Break joins the cast - as T-Bag? show set in same Prison Break universe

Welcome back to TV, T-Bag! Robert Knepper told EW that he has closed a deal to resurrect his classic Prison Break convict T-Bag in the A&E fugitive-themed drama Breakout Kings. The Gates star Frank Grillo who was also on Prison Break will also be on the show though he will play a different character.

“We’re done. We inked a deal. I’m gonna do it! T-Bag will live again!” Knepper told EW on Thursday. “What I realized by saying yes to that is that now they’ll entertain the possibility of a T-Bag spinoff. Like a Hannibal Lecter-type series. Or a doll line. It’d be big with the kids!”

“I have to dust off the Southern accent. I have not seen a script. I am putting my faith in these guys’ hands. The only thing I asked was that T-Bag doesn’t die. And they said, ‘Oh, no don’t worry. He won’t.’ He came close many times but managed to cheat and escape death. He’s Teflon.”

Driven by the fact that there are few things more dangerous than a prisoner who has just escaped, and tired of following protocol and resorting to outdated methods of law enforcement, veteran U.S. Marshals Charlie Duchamp (Laz Alonso) and Ray Zancanelli (Domenick Lombardozzi) are taking an unorthodox approach to their work: using former fugitives to catch fugitives. Charlie and Ray form a special task force composed of the three most elusive convicts Ray ever captured: a former child prodigy and behaviorist/psychiatric expert who dabbles in psychoanalysis (Jimmi Simpson); an ex-gang-banger who knows how to work the system – both in prison and on the street (Malcolm Goodwin); and a sexy expert in finding people, then hiding and killing them (Serinda Swan). Charlie and Ray also employ the services of a civilian who acts as the “funnel” for the group – all information, tips and data go through her (Brooke Nevin). With each fugitive they apprehend, the closer they get to earning their own freedom.

“Breakout Kings” is a production of Fox 21 and Chernin Entertainment. The series is created, written, and executive produced by Matt Olmstead and Nick Santora. Gavin Hood, who directed the pilot and helped develop the project, also executive produces alongside Peter Chernin and Katherine Pope.

Now can someone contact Jodi Lyn O'Keefe and William Fichtner ?
