A miniseries focused on the June 2015 escape of two inmates from Clinton Correctional Facility will debut in November. The trailer for the limited series Escape At Dannemora on Showtime debuted Tuesday. The series stars Patricia Arquette, Paul Dano and Benicio Del Toro. Richard Matt and David Sweat, both of whom were convicted of murder, escaped from Clinton Correctional Facility in Dannemora. A prison worker, Joyce Mitchell, supervised them in the prison's tailor shop and became sexually involved with both inmates. Mitchell then smuggled hacksaw blades and other tools to the pair, who used them to cut through a steel cell wall and several steam pipes to make an escape route to a manhole outside the prison walls. Matt was killed by searchers in woods three weeks later. Sweat was shot and captured two days later near the border. Mitchell, 52, was sentenced to 2-1/3 to 7 years in prison. Escape At Dannemora will premiere on Sunday, November 18 at 10 p.m. EST.
