TV movie about prison break?  
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.

I'm vaguely thinking it's a movie based on a Danielle Steele movie. Not 100% sure though.

I mean a Danielle Steele book, not movie.

Maybe a Tales from the Crypt episode?

I knew that clue would be too misleading.
The TV movie I saw was not in any way horror related. The woman doesn't die, but it WAS on TV in 1985, the same year as that color episode of Final Escape, which is why I get the two confused.
No, what I refer to is sort of a `lifetime movie' but it came on a regular local channel, some kind of `based on actual events' drama about a woman running from the police, and then she sees a little girl about to be washed off the end of the hydroelectric dam...
I guess I'll never know what it's called.
