It was a miniseries or one time TV event back in the eighties, about the same time they made the full color Hitchcock Presents episode about the lady who tries to sneak out of prison in a coffin. It seemed to have a similar feel to it, but in the TV movie, the woman actually gets out of jail, but then loses her freedom trying to save a little girl from plunging off a dam. That's all I remember about the movie. I can't remember if it was true or not, but it was similar to the Fugitive.
TV movie about prison break? - What was that one?!
You know, that one!!
