Fox

Prison Break is a FOX serial drama which ran for five seasons and was created by Paul Scheuring. Its first season aired in 2005, set predominantly in Fox River Penitentiary, where Michael Scofield (Wentworth Miller) has gotten himself incarcerated in order to save his brother, Lincoln Burrows (Dominic Purcell). During the course of the first four seasons, Michael and his supporting cast looked to clear Lincoln's name as they unravel a conspiracy surrounding the Vice President's Brother's (spoiler alert) 'murder'.

Now, as some fans of the show will already be aware, there are some great behind-the-scenes factoids. For example, Michael's blueprint tattoo would of cost $20000, some of the Fox River scenes were shot in John Wayne Gacy's old cell and our heroes are named after U.S Presidents... and ingredients to make a cup of tea. But those are a little too well-known.

If you were unaware of those already, considered this a 23 Things You Didn't Know About Prison Break list instead. An odd amount and not as catchy but never mind. Regardless, there are handfuls of interesting facts about the show's cast and as well as about its production.
