The critically-acclaimed and award-winning mini-series THE ESCAPE ARTIST stars David Tennant (DOCTOR WHO, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire) as Will Burton, a brilliant defense lawyer coined “The Escape Artist” for his infamous ability to free criminals. When Burton helps to free an obviously-guilty client based on a technicality, his life takes a dramatic turn: the client begins to stalk Burton’s wife (Ashley Jensen, UGLY BETTY) and young son (Gus Berry), forcing Burton to face the reality that the actions of his morally-questionable career may have devastating consequences. THE ESCAPE ARTIST will also be available in the British TV and Crime & Mystery collections.
