Trivia

When Ben Stiller first received the script (which was written just two months after the escape occurred), he turned it down after finding out that the majority of it was made up due to information about the escape not being publicly available. A few months later, the New York Inspector General released an official report outlining the breakout, leading Stiller and the screenwriters to reconnect and subsequently produce a new script that focused as much a possible on the real story.

Stiller's career peak
24 December 2018 | by billyweeds-1See all my reviews

Nothing Ben Stiller has ever done before or behind the camera could prepare you for the utter brilliance of his directorial achievement in this amazing series. His work with the actors is phenomenal, and his camera placement and movement is inspired. It's a thrilling series, with superb performances by all, with special mention for Patricia Arquette, who makes you completely get the double meaning of the title. Yes, the story is about a prison "escape." but it's also about Tilly (Arquette's character) trying to escape her dead-end existence. Memorable. Must-see. Award-worthy.
