Serinda Swan is rarely around the set without her beloved dog Buddha.
Kelly Hu, who plays Alastor's Executive Director Kendra Park, holds a black belt in karate.
Cameras mounted on huge cranes are used to get the big sweeping shots. Since the opening shot of the episode takes place in a swamp, the crew had to place sheets of plywood under the wheels. Because it took over three hours to shoot the scene, the heavy crane slowly sank into the mud, eventually becoming stuck. Solid road was more than 70 yards away so the crew used an actual prison bus on loan from the Louisiana state penitentiary to tow the crane out of the mud onto firm ground.
Dash Mihok previously dated Alanis Morisette and is a trained dancer.
For reasons unknown, at all the shoot locations there were lots of garbage cans. At some locations, there were so many garbage cans that the crew had to remove some to avoid the scene looking odd. Some examples can be found in the park where Rodney and Lorraine encounter the family and again outside their hotel rooms.
A large crane was set up by the crew to capture the scene where Emmy escapes through the bathroom window on to the street, in one flowing high angle take.
Ronnie Marcum's reluctant accomplice played by Michael Reilly Burke has appeared on three different Star Trek shows and all three CSI's.
At the apartment of Mo Blakely, Marcum's first victim, the Breakout Kings speak to a local cop played by Michael Marcasciano. Mike is Domenick Lombardozzi's best friend from childhood, and works as Dom's assistant on the show. This was Mike's acting debut and for the remainder of shooting, the crew would refer to Mike by his character name, Local Cop, to stir the pot and get a reaction.

Dominic Keating who plays bad guy Bob Dixon made his acting debut as a drag act, acquiring his equity card in the process.
An actual, functioning funeral home was used to shoot portions of this episode. With the trailers located on the other side of the building from the set, cast and crew at times had to go through the funeral home when it was time to shoot.
The tunnel scene was filmed at Stage 8 at the Celtic Media Center, Baton Rouge, LA.
Three sets were used to make the tunnel escape: the kitchen, the tunnel and the house.
We learn that Lloyd was applying for college at age 8, and that he is now 34.
Jimmi Simpson and Nate Mooney appeared together in It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia as Ryan and Liam McPoyle.
Jason Behr performed the zip line stunt himself.
The prison scenes were shot on location at Louisiana's Angola Prison, an 18,000 acre fully functioning, prisoner-occupied facility. The set was home to actual inmates and the shooting took place in Angola's Death Row Unit. Since Angola is a fully operation facility, no cell phones or lighters were allowed on set and every crew member had to have a background check before they could enter prison grounds. The show's inmate wardrobe blended so well with the actual Angola prisoner uniforms that the crew members had to actually ask inmates to step out of frame.

When Ray asks Julianne who the boats were sold to, she mentions the names of Karyn Usher, Zack Estrin and Graham Roland. These three were writers on "Prison Break" which the creators of "Breakout Kings" (Nick Santora and Matt Olmstead) worked with on the former.
The Chastity character played by Daren Herbert required 90 minutes in hair and makeup to achieve the desired effect.
