Exeunt Omnes

Synopsis
US television drama series. Oz is the nickname for the Oswald State Correctional Facility, a maximum-security prison. OZ is narrated by Augustus Hill, a wheelchair-bound prisoner (Perrineau, who was killed at the end of season 5), in surreal segments that usually relate to an overall theme of the episode. In the final episode of the last season characters are killed off and storylines tied up against a background of a prison production of Macbeth.
