Breakout Kings was an American crime drama television series that aired on A&E from 2011 to 2012. The show was produced by Matt Olmstead and Nick Santora, and it starred Laz Alonso, Domenick Lombardozzi, Brooke Nevin, Malcolm Goodwin, Serinda Swan, and Jimmi Simpson.

The series revolves around a unique task force that is composed of American marshals and former convicts who work together to track down escaped prisoners. The marshals are led by Charlie Duchamp, a seasoned law-enforcement officer who is known for his skills and experience in his field.

The task force's main objective is to catch escaped prisoners who have been deemed too dangerous to be at large. The members of the team have been handpicked by Duchamp because of their unique skills and abilities, as well as their unique insights into the criminal mind.

The team is composed of Ray Zancanelli, a former cop who was falsely accused of murder; Shea Daniels, a former gang member who can crack any code; Erica Reed, a former bounty hunter who has a talent for profiling; and Lloyd Lowery, a savant who has been diagnosed with multiple personality disorder.

As the series progresses, the task force faces challenges and obstacles that test their mettle and push them to their limits. They have to keep pace with the escaped prisoners who are always one step ahead of them, and they have to solve intricate puzzles and riddles in order to track down their quarry.

What sets Breakout Kings apart from other crime dramas is its unique premise. The show's creators have taken a novel idea and turned it into a compelling and entertaining series. The concept of using former convicts to track down other convicts is both fascinating and believable, and the show's writers have done an excellent job of exploring the potential of this concept.

The show's cast is also a major strength. Laz Alonso is excellent in the role of Charlie Duchamp, and he brings a sense of gravitas and authority to the character. Domenick Lombardozzi is also great as Ray Zancanelli, and he brings a sense of grit and determination to the role.

Brooke Nevin, Malcolm Goodwin, Serinda Swan, and Jimmi Simpson all deliver strong performances as well. The chemistry between the cast members is palpable, and they work well together to create an engaging and dynamic team that viewers can root for.

Another impressive aspect of the show is its production values. The series is shot on location in Toronto, and the city's distinctive architecture and landscapes provide a unique backdrop for the action. The show's cinematography is also top-notch, with a keen eye for detail and an impressive use of lighting and shadow.

Overall, Breakout Kings is a well-crafted and entertaining crime drama that is worth watching. Its unique premise, strong cast, and impressive production values make it stand out from the pack, and it is sure to appeal to fans of the genre. Whether you are a die-hard crime drama aficionado or just looking for a compelling and engaging series to watch, Breakout Kings is definitely worth checking out.
