Ben Stiller Heading to Mipcom for World Premiere of ‘Escape at Dannemora’

Ben Stiller will be in Cannes in October for the world-premiere screening of his Showtime series “Escape at Dannemora.” The series will be showcased on the first day of Mipcom, the biggest event on the international TV calendar.

Stiller directed and executive-produced “Escape at Dannemora,” which stars Benicio Del Toro (“Traffic”), Patricia Arquette (“Boyhood”), Paul Dano (“There Will Be Blood”) and Bonnie Hunt (“Life With Bonnie”). Michael Imperioli has a guest starring role.

The series is based on a real-life 2015 prison break in upstate New York that saw two convicts escape with the help of a married female prison employee, with whom they both became romantically entangled.

The series is written by Brett Johnson and Michael Tolkin, who were writers on Showtime’s “Ray Donovan.” Both will exec-produce with Stiller, Bryan Zuriff, Michael De Luca though his Michael De Luca Productions and Nicky Weinstock for Red Hour Productions.
