The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that Fox is looking to create a spinoff to its third year drama Prison Break. Tentatively titled Prison Break: Cherry Hill, the show would focus on a new character (Molly) that will be introduced later this season on Prison Break.
Plan is to center the show around a women’s prison. Fox has ordered a script for the possible spinoff, which will be written by Prison Break executive producer Matt Olmstead and co-executive producer Zack Estrin.
Here are some more details, courtesy The Hollywood Reporter:
Molly is an upper-middle-class wife. After suffering a family tragedy at the hands of the Company — the government conspiracy that framed Michael (Wentworth Miller) and Lincoln (Dominic Purcell) and put them behind bars — she seeks them out at the hellish Panamanian prison Sona in her quest to exact vengeance.
“There is an ironic similarity between Molly and Michael — they’re both emotionally banged-up, both have lost loved ones, and both want the people responsible to pay — so they empathize with each other,” Olmstead said. (Michael’s love interest Sara, played by Sarah Wayne Callies, was killed earlier this season.)
