Lifetime's version

According to Lifetime, the network will show how Joyce Mitchell believed the two convicted murderers were in love with her.

Because the movie is titled "The New York Prison Break: The Seduction of Joyce Mitchell," it is believed that the movie will focus more on the woman than on the convicted murderers.

Joyce Mitchell's admission

The married mother of three admitted that she fell in love and was intimate with both Richard Matt and David Sweat who were both serving life sentences for murder. She also admitted to her part in the escape including smuggling tools to them in frozen hamburger meat.

Mitchell, played by Golden Globe and SAG nominee Penelope Ann Miller, had planned to run away to Mexico with them. Their plan failed when the woman got cold feet and became so ill that she ended up in the hospital and failed to show up to be their getaway driver. She told officials that the men had planned to kill her husband, and she didn't want him to die.
