break out of prison; win £100,000.
Britain’s Channel 5 debuts Jailbreak on Tuesday, which features 10 people trying to escape from a specially-constructed prison. While the prison is covered in cameras, guards will only be able to see seven surveillance cameras. Also, “viewers can e-mail prisoners with suggestions and ideas,” the Independent reports; if a viewer’s tip helps that prisoner escape, the viewer gets £10,000.
