Freeman, who played God in the “Almighty” series and (more relevantly) was nominated for a Best Actor Oscar for portraying Ellis Boyd ‘Red’ Redding in “The Shawshank Redemption,” released a statement on the upcoming program.

I’ve been inside the minds of prisoners in my acting career, and I’m looking forward to stepping inside the most notorious prisons in the world, like Alcatraz, Sing Sing, Rikers Island, and Leavenworth.

Audiences will feel like they’re making the escapes themselves as I walk them into a virtual world and through the greatest escapes in history.

Each episode explores how each prison escape happened, who escaped, and whether they were caught. The show features dramatic recreations and cutting-edge visual effects, detailing every stage of the escape.
