INVESTIGATION DISCOVERY JOINS THE MANHUNT IN "PRISON BREAK: KILLERS ON THE RUN"

--Network Calls for Convicts to Turn Themselves in to Authorities Immediately --

(Silver Spring, MD) - Fear swept over the state of New York on the morning of Saturday, June 6, 2015 when news broke of the escape of inmates Richard Matt and David Sweat from the Clinton Correctional Facility. As the desperate search for the escapees spreads across the region, Investigation Discovery (ID) joins the manhunt in the one-hour special PRISON BREAK: KILLERS ON THE RUN, revealing the two killers' brutal past, the dark conspiracy that formed behind bars, the chilling, intricate details of the breakout, and tracking the possible whereabouts of the convicts. Presented under ID's "instamentary" series strand, FRONT PAGE, and produced by NBC News' Peacock Productions, PRISON BREAK: KILLERS ON THE RUN premieres on Thursday, June 18 at 9/8c only on Investigation Discovery.

"We encourage convicts Matt and Sweat to watch PRISON BREAK: KILLERS ON THE RUN and turn themselves in to authorities peacefully," said Henry Schleiff, Group President at Discovery Communications. "As our documentary shows, the noose is tightening and you will be found."

The preparation, execution and success of Matt and Sweat's escape calls for an explanation. How long had the inmates planned the convoluted escape route? How much assistance did they have from prison employee Joyce Mitchell and others? Was this all part of another murderous plot? PRISON BREAK: KILLERS ON THE RUN takes viewers inside the most notorious maximum security prison to reveal how two inmates ended up behind bars and orchestrated an ingenious prison break that seems like a Hollywood movie. Interviews with police officers, investigators and former Clinton Correctional Facility prisoners provide the backstories of the convicts and where they could possibly be now.

ID's "instamentary" series, FRONT PAGE, covers major cases making headlines, within just weeks of the initial incident or arrest. Each installment features commentary from experts at the scene of the investigation and provides viewers a trusted source for information.

PRISON BREAK: KILLERS ON THE RUN is produced for Investigation Discovery by NBC News' Peacock Productions with Elizabeth Waller and Lloyd Fales as executive producers and Knute Walker as senior vice president of production. For Investigation Discovery, Sara Kozak and John Cavanagh serve as executive producers, Kevin Bennett is general manager, and Henry Schleiff is Group President.
