Prison Break writers Matt Olmstead and Nick Santora have returned to Fox with a new drama project Break Out Kings, which revolves around ex-fugitives who are recruited to work as U.S. marshals.

According to Variety, the network has given the 20th Century Fox TV project a script order with a hefty penalty attached if it doesn't go to pilot. Olmstead and Santora penned the pilot. Gavin Hood, helmer of X-Men Origins: Wolverine, is attached to direct and exec produce.

The project is described as a procedural based in Gotham, but the team will move around the country as it works on specific cases.
