Prison Break's T-Bag is Back in Breakout Kings (VIDEO)

Cable channel A&E; is adding to its original programming slate with the upcoming Breakout Kings, an action drama from the producers of Prison Break. The show was originally set up at Fox, but when Fox passed, A&E; stepped up.

Breakout Kings follows a group of U.S. marshals that teams up with ex-convicts to track down fugitives who have broken out of prison. One of the cool things about the show is that it will exist in the Prison Break universe, meaning former characters from that show will appear on Breakout Kings. Including Mr. Despicable himself, T-Bag, who is due to appear in four episodes. Hell and Yes. Here's a first look at the show.

I was originally lukewarm about this program, but wow, it actually looks pretty good. With its Oceans 11 feel and unexpected humor, I'd say Breakout Kings has a good chance at success. Plus, it's got Herc from The Wire (Dominick Lombardozzi) and one of the McPoyles from It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia as the requisite "who farted?" guy.

Breakout Kings premieres March 6 at 10pm on FX.

While the joy of seeing his role revised is phenomenal, the show itself has some rough writing early on. First review is now out: http://www.spoilertv.com/2011/02/breakout-kings-advanced-screening.html (I'm hoping it improves as the weeks progress).

I enjoyed Prison Break but it got way too repetitive and the concept got stale. I mean seriously breaking out of one prison or maybe two, but beyond that it was too convoluted. This show has a lot of potential because there are so many ways it could go so it shouldn't turn into a parody of itself like Prison Break did after awhile.

Finally a show where no one dances with no one, or sings, or goes a fricking island.
Just guns, violence, cars, violence, chicks, violence and farts!
See, it's easy.

I'll definitely tune in! T-Bag's back!!! Couldn't tell if he has the same rubber hand as he did on Prison Break though.. it should since the show takes place on the same universe.

Shutter? He makes you feel like a camera? Interesting...

Aside from the fact that the character of T-bag always makes me shutter whenever he speaks, this looks very good. **I think FOX (once again) has made a mistake by not jumping on a show that could potentially be huge.

I can't tell from the promo if T-Bag is rightfully missing his hand. The promos A&E have been airing for this show are absolutely awful, I can't believe they're not using this footage. I'll check it out due to Prison Break Universe + some T-Bag + McPoyle.

Prison Break - the first season - was really outstanding! It then went downhill NOT because of the actors, writing, producing, but because of the concept.

This concept can last multiple seasons and get better and better!! I look forward to seeing great talent put on a great concept and will be watching the end result. Like the blogger, originally, I wasn't planning on watching, but this additional information makes the difference.

T-Bag was the only funny character in Prison Break, so I'll like seeing him again.

Serinda Swan finally getting an actual part on a show. I'm in.

Wow, that does look good. And the best part of Prison Break (besides Fichtner), T-Bag returns!

Yeah it looks good, although a bit too episodical for me. I'm sure a lot of people will love it though. And they can be glad Fox passed on it because they would only screw it up. Cable is the way to go.

Was that Scut Farkus himself (Zack Ward) walking toward a jeep with an exploding building behind him at 1:50? He's not listed on IMDB, so perhaps not, but it sort of looked like him, although I couldn't see his yellow eyes. He had yellow eyes!
