After two seasons on the air A&E is canceling its drama series BREAKOUT KINGS due to low ratings reports TVLine.com. Co-star Malcolm Goodwin confirmed the news on his Twitter account last night, thanking fans for “the luv & support over the last 2 seasons! It’s been a fun experience! Much luv! On to the next.”
A&E Network's original scripted drama series, BREAKOUT KINGS is from Matt Olmstead and Nick Santora and follows an unconventional partnership between the U.S. Marshals' office and a group of convicts as they work to catch fugitives on the run.
In BREAKOUT KINGS, veteran U.S. Marshals Charlie Duchamp (Laz Alonso, Avatar, Fast and the Furious 4: Fast & Furious) and Ray Zancanelli (Domenick Lombardozzi, "The Wire," "Entourage") decide to reject protocol and take an unorthodox approach to their work: using former criminals to catch current ones. They form a special task force composed of the three most elusive convicts Ray ever captured: Lloyd Lowery (Jimmi Simpson, "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia,"), a former child prodigy and behaviorist/psychiatric expert who excels in psychoanalysis; Shea Daniels (Malcolm Goodwin, American Gangster), an ex-gang banger who knows how to work the system, both in prison and on the street; and Erica Reed (Serinda Swan, Tron: Legacy, "Smallville"), a sexy expert tracker who learned her trade from her bounty hunter father. Charlie and Ray also employ the services of Julianne Simms (Brooke Nevin, "Worst Week"), a civilian who acts as the "funnel" for the group - all information, tips and data go through her.
