Prison Break is a drama television series that revolves around two brothers; one has been sentenced to death for a crime he did not commit, and the other devises an elaborate plan to help his brother escape prison.

In the first season, we follow the rescue of Lincoln Burrows, who is accused of murdering the brother of the Vice President of the United States. Lincoln is sentenced to death and is incarcerated. Lincoln's brother, brilliant structural engineer Michael Scofield, is convinced of Lincoln's innocence and formulates an escape plan.

In order to gain access to Fox River, Michael commits armed robbery. The brothers' fight to ward off the execution is aided by their lifelong friend Veronica Donovan, who begins to investigate the conspiracy that put Lincoln in jail. However, they are hindered by covert agents, members of an organization known as The Company, which was responsible for framing Lincoln, and they did so because of Lincoln's father, Aldo Burrows, and his former connections to the company. The brothers, along with six other inmates, escape in the season finale.

Following the prisoner�s separation after their escape, Michael and Lincoln make it to Panama safely. Being able to avoid The Company�s hunt, they face yet another obstacle in the Panamanian prison, Sona. However, it is now run and guarded by former inmates after a riot a year ago.

The major storyline for the fourth season concerns a team recruited by Homeland Security agent Don Self to obtain Scylla. Although the team initially believes it to be the Company's "black book", it is later revealed to contain information on an advanced renewable power cell. More investigations uncover the truth of the brother�s mother, and how she was member of the Company in order to retrieve the power cell. Lincoln joins the Company and Michael will become ill, threatening their efforts to thwart The Company�s plots. However, this won�t be easy as he�s not the only one playing the other side.

The main cast includes Dominic Purcell as Lincoln Burrows, Wentworth Miller as Michael Scofield, Amaury Nolasco as Fernando Sucre, Robert Knepper as Theodore �T-bag� Bagwell, Sarah Wayne Callies as Dr. Sara Tancredi.
