“Breakout Kings” close to collaring A&E

“Breakout Kings,” a fugitive chase drama pilot developed for Fox, is looking like it will land soon at A&E Network.

The 20th Century Fox TV project from scribes Matt Olmstead and Nick Santora had strong buzz all through pilot season but didn’t get the nod from Fox in the waning days before the net’s May upfront. Producers reps began shopping it aggressively, and A&E was a likely candidate from the get-to given its focus on crime procedurals.

Series revolves around a team of federal marshals and the ex-cons who help them track down dangerous fugitives. Olmstead and Santora know the action-thriller territory well from their hitch on “Prison Break.”
