Fox is looking to spin-off “Prison Break” with the tentatively titled “Prison Break: Cherry Hill,” says The Hollywood Reporter. The potential new series would be set at a women’s prison and center on Molly, a new regular character that will be introduced on “Prison” later this season.
Fox has ordered a script of the possible spin-off, which is being written by “Prison” executive producer Matt Olmstead and co-executive producer Zack Estrin and produced by 20th Century Fox TV.
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.
In “Cherry Hill,” which would have the same tone as “Prison,” Molly goes to a women’s detention facility fully accepting the life sentence for her acts of revenge until she is contacted by the government with information that some of her loved ones are alive.
If “Cherry Hill” doesn’t go forward, Molly will continue on “Prison” as a regular character.
