A drama series that was hailed as groundbreaking when it had a four-season run on Fox is moving to the NBCUniversal channel NBC Universo, where it will air in Spanish.
“Prison Break,” starring Dominic Purcell, Wentworth Miller and Amaury Nolasco, originally aired on Fox from 2005-2009, chalking up 81 episodes. The series premieres Tuesday, Oct. 20, on NBC Universo at 10 p.m. ET/PT.
“The dramatic series follows a young man determined to save his convicted brother from death row and prove his innocence by hatching an elaborate plan to escape from prison,” NBCU said in a press release. “Tomorrow’s first episode begins at a tattoo shop where a structural engineer, Michael Scofield (Wentworth Miller), is getting the final touches put on a large tattoo. It is soon revealed that the tattoo has a secret purpose as part of an elaborate plan to try and help solve the conspiracy that landed his brother behind bars.”
