What’s This TV Show About?
A Showtime crime drama, Escape at Dannemora stars Benicio Del Toro, Patricia Arquette, Paul Dano, Eric Lange, Bonnie Hunt, and David Morse. It is based on a 2015 real-life prison break from the Clinton Correctional Facility, in the village of Dannemora, New York. Richard Matt (Del Toro) is a self-taught artist, with a knack for painting portraits of celebrities. Matt’s co-conspirator, David Sweat (Dano), prefers to spend his time quietly but, beneath his aloof exterior, lurks a truly dark streak. There are a number of factors working in Richard and David’s favor, including inept management and oversight. The biggest boost to the duo’s plot to escape is Joyce “Tilly” Mitchell (Arquette), a wife and mother who is employed as an inmate supervisor in the prison’s tailor shop.
Season One Ratings
Will Showtime cancel or renew Escape at Dannemora for season two? The ratings weren’t very good but they’ve been climbing. This feels like a one-and-done series so I suspect there won’t be a second season but, these days, you never know. They could bring it back with a new cast and story. For now, I’ll keep an eye on the Nielsens and update this page with breaking developments. Subscribe for free Escape at Dannemora cancellation and renewal alerts.
