Fox invited the Television Critics Association to a press day at the Beverly Hilton. Guess my invite got lost in the mail. Instead, I pass along to you this recap from E! News’ Kristin for all of you Prison Break fans: There’s talk of a spin-off. And it ain’t gonna be here:
[Executive Producer Matt] Olmstead told me that he and coexec producer Zack Estrin (both very cool guys, FYI) are right in the middle of rewriting the Prison Break spinoff. “We are finishing the script; then we’ll cast it, and then we’ll hopefully shoot it and get it on the air.” The strike threw a wrench in the original plan to intro a new female character who would helm the new show–they also couldn’t get their dream picks to move to Dallas, so Olmsteadt said the move to L.A. will help with the casting.
Maybe it was the heat that turned their dream picks away.
