IMDb TV, Amazon’s streaming service, announced it has ordered “Sprung,” a new single-camera comedy series from Emmy Award-winning writer Greg Garcia. Starring Garret Dillahunt, “Sprung” centers on an unlikely group of formerly incarcerated people, who band together to use their criminal expertise for good.

The logline: From Amazon Studios, “Sprung” follows Jack (Dillahunt), a convicted criminal who is determined to change course and reclaim his lost years after serving more than two decades in prison. With no place to live post-release, and a global pandemic bringing the world to a virtual standstill, Jack moves in with his former cellmate Rooster (Phillip Garcia), Rooster’s mom Barb (Illeana Douglas), and Jack’s former prison girlfriend Gloria. Bound by their marred past and unusual living circumstances, they decide to start righting some of society’s wrongs, targeting those people selfishly taking advantage of others during the pandemic.

“Sprung” is executive produced by Garcia, Dillahunt, Michael Rotenberg and Jonathan Berry in association with 3 Arts. Tim Stack, Michael Pennie and Bobby Bowman are consulting producers and Gina Gari is co-producer. Garcia will also direct the series’ pilot episode.
