When: Wednesday, November 14, 2018 @ 6:30PM

Hot Spot: Alice Tully Hall, NYC

Deets: Directed and executive produced by Emmy® winner Ben Stiller, ESCAPE AT DANNEMORA is a limited-event series starring Academy Award® winners Benicio Del Toro and Patricia Arquette and Golden Globe nominee Paul Dano.

ESCAPE AT DANNEMORA is a limited-event series based on 2015’s stranger-than-fiction prison break from Clinton Correctional Facility. The two escapees, both convicted murderers, were aided by a married female prison employee who reportedly carried on affairs with both men while supervising them in the tailor shop. It spawned the largest manhunt in the history of New York State.

Benicio Del Toro plays convicted murderer Richard Matt, an anomalous yet powerful force within the prison who masterminds the escape. Paul Dano plays his co-conspirator, David Sweat. The two met in prison when they were housed on the same block. Patricia Arquette plays Joyce “Tilly" Mitchell, a working-class wife and mother who works as an inmate supervisor in the prison tailor shop. The cast also features Golden Globe and Emmy nominee Bonnie Hunt, acclaimed actor Eric Lange and Emmy nominee David Morse.

Produced by SHOWTIME®, ESCAPE AT DANNEMORA is directed and executive produced by Emmy® winner Ben Stiller. The series is written and executive produced by Brett Johnson (Mad Men) and Oscar® nominee Michael Tolkin (The Player), who met while working as writers on Ray Donovan. In addition to Stiller, Johnson and Tolkin, three-time Academy Award® nominee Michael De Luca (The Social Network, Fifty Shades of Grey) via Michael De Luca Productions, Bryan Zuriff (Steve Jobs, Ray Donovan), Nicky Weinstock for Red Hour Productions and Bill Carraro (Blade Runner 2049, Terminator Genisys) serve as executive producers.
