Prison Break Pitches Women's Prison Spinoff

Prison Break Pitches Women's Prison Spinoff


First Private Practice, now this: The Prison Break team is planning a spinoff set in a women's prison. The show, Prison Break: Cherry Hill, would focus on a character named Molly who will be joining the regular Prison Break cast later this season. The rest of the info includes mild spoilers for upcoming episodes, but if you want to know more about the potential spinoff, just

Molly is an upper-middle-class wife with a lot in common with Michael: They've both suffered at the hands of the Company, they've both lost loved ones, and they both want the people responsible for their suffering to pay. Molly's introduction to Prison Break will come when she finds Michael and Lincoln at Sona. Ultimately she's sentenced to life in a women's prison because of her vengeful acts, but the government eventually lets her know that some of her family is still alive. Apparently that's where the prison-breaking bit would come in. Said executive producer Matt Olmstead, who is writing the spinoff script:

In a moment's time, she is transformed from an unapologetic murderer to a motivated woman who would do anything to get out of prison and be with them.

Olmstead said Molly will bring some clues to Prison Break and work with Michael and Lincoln to uncover the mysteries of the Company, and if the spinoff doesn't get picked up, Molly would remain a regular character on the original series. The producers are currently searching for an actress to play Molly, and after she's cast, they'll determine when she'll join Prison Break.

So, what do you think? Is this a good way to refresh Prison Break and give fans more to watch after the Sara debacle? Or does it sound like a bad idea?

A lot of spinoffs, especially ones that this supposed one coming to be, usually fail.

when I read the title of the show, I immediately thought you were joking. You're joking, right?

Cherry Hill? Makes me think of Cherry Hill, NJ. Like she'll have to climb the venting shafts above the Coach store and the French Connection is order to escape. Not a lot of street cred. Though I'm sure that's not the only Cherry Hill out there. I won't be watching, though.

Ahhhh.. I love Prison Break and I love that it's all about Link the sink and Scofield. I don't think I would like this spinoff since it is all about some girl.. I wanna watch Wentworth Miller the whole hour. Haha :)

Bad bad bad. Even Prison Break isn't what it used to be with most of the original cast dead and the addition with tons of characters I could care less about. They honestly can't think this is a good idea.

BAD IDEA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Sounds dumb and if the male version is already in the pits what makes you think making it women would make it better. Besides the obvious fact that women rule over men. (duh) lol Maybe if this idea was incorporated into the original season but not as a seperate show....come on now!

Sounds like a weak idea to appease all the female lead protestors. They need to fix Prison Break, not start a new show. I'm not interested in this. Unless Wentworth will be on it. LOL! No, I'm really not.

I don't even watch Prison Break so I personally could care less if they made a spin-off because I won't be watching that one either.

I don't watch Prison Break, but I don't understand how they can already be floating the idea of a spin-off based on a character that hasn't even appeared yet. Can you say cart before the horse?
