In 2015, two inmates made a brazen escape from the Clinton Correctional Facility in upstate New York. Richard Matt and David Sweat were found missing on a morning count, and it was discovered they had tunneled out of the prison in a way reminiscent of The Shawshank Redemption. Over three weeks later, Richard Matt was dead and David Sweat was captured — and the story of how they escaped came to light. The eight-episode series is directed by Ben Stiller and stars Patricia Arquette, Paul Dano and Benicio Del Toro. Escape From Dannemora premieres on Showtime November 18, 2018.
