Sunday, March 6, 2011: Breakout Kings

Sunday, March 6, 2011: <i>Breakout Kings</i>

From the minds of two of your favorite prison-breaking authorities Nick Santora and Matt Olmstead (executive producers of Prison Break) comes Breakout Kings, a light, bouncy action show about U.S. Marshals recruiting convicts to help them catch escaped inmates. Since that kind of thing is hard to film on the beach, this show is not on USA, where it probably really belongs, but instead lives on A&E's sparse scripted roster. No bikinis in prison, you see.

If you like that kind of tone for your action and crime shows, Breakout Kings also has a familiar cast of friendly faces going for it. Many of you probably recognize Dominic Lombardozzi, or Herc from The Wire, in the photo above. He's one of the Marshals, and rounding out the cast of cons is Jimmi Simpson, aka Liam McPoyle of It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia (among other things). There's also some girl named Serinda Swan, who looks like Gretchen Wilson, but isn't. Can't win 'em all.

Breakout Kings premieres on A&E tonight at 10 PM, opposite the second hour of the premiere of The Celebrity Apprentice (NBC), Brothers & Sisters (ABC), the premiere of The Real Housewives of Orange County (Bravo) and Shameless (Showtime).
