"Prison Break" is a drama series on FOX that centers around Michael Scofield (Wentworth Miller), who is a desperate man in a desperate situation. His brother, Lincoln Burrows (Dominic Purcell), is on death row and scheduled to die in a few months for an assassination that Michael is convinced Lincoln did not commit.

With no other options and time winding down, Michael held up a bank on the premiere episode to get himself incarcerated alongside his brother in Fox River State Penitentiary. Once he's inside, Michael — a structural engineer with the blueprints for the prison — begins to execute an elaborate plan to break out Lincoln and prove him innocent of this sensational murder.

With the help of his cellmate, Sucre (Amaury Nolasco), Michael begins to align himself with a disparate group of prisoners, including former mob boss John Abruzzi (Peter Stormare) and Charles Westmoreland (Muse Watson), a man some believe to be the infamous skyjacker D.B. Cooper.

On the outside Michael has only one ally, his defense attorney and longtime friend, Veronica Donovan (Robin Tunney) — who also happens to be Lincoln's former girlfriend. Meanwhile, Lincoln's 15-year-old son, LJ (Marshall Allman), is now adrift without his uncle Michael's positive influence in his life.

Rounding out the cast are Dr. Sara Tancredi (Sarah Wayne Callies), whom Michael ends up visiting in the prison infirmary more than he should; senior correctional officer Bellick (Wade Williams), who is determined to keep a close eye on his new prisoner, and the powerful Warden Pope (Stacy Keach), who forges a close, almost father-son relationship with the new convict.
