    During Foxs upfront press call in May, Fox TV Group chairman and CEO Dana Walden revealed that former 24 executive showrunner Howard Gordon is working with 24 co-creators Joel Surnow and Bob Cochran on a possible new incarnation of the real-time drama. Walden would not elaborate on what the new premise is, but noted that we are very excited about where the show would go. I have learned that where the potential new installment would go is the past. I hear the new 24 series, now in active development at 20th TV and Imagine TV, will serve as a prequel...

The network and 24 producers 20th Century Fox, Imagine TV and Gordon had been discussing new ideas for a 24 series since the end of 24: Legacy last...

    Fox is developing a potential new incarnation of its Emmy-winning drama series that would have a female lead and take the real-time format of the terrorism-themed original and apply it to a different arena, criminal justice. The project, which has received a script commitment, hails from 24 franchise executive producers Howard Gordon and Imagines Brian Grazer, as well as former The Killing writer-producer Jeremy Doner and the franchises production companies, 20th Century Fox TV and Imagine TV. Doner will write the script with Gordon, who ran the original series. Details about the premise are sketchy, but I hear that the...

    Fox chairman and CEO Dana Walden said the network is exploring new ways to continue the franchise, even though it released star Corey Hawkins out of his commitment for future installments. We are really exploring what the future might be, perhaps as an anthology storytelling franchise, Walden told reporters Tuesday at the Television Critics Association tour in Beverly Hills. We felt really good about a lot of the last season. It was a hard decision to make, whether to bring it back or not. We let Corey out of his obligation so he could do his Broadway play. It felt...

    The Legacy is over, but 24 will live on. Fox has decided not to renew 24: Legacy for a second season despite investing heavily in the show by premiering it after the Super Bowl this year. The network will instead work with producers to re-develop the franchise for a new version with a refreshed cast later on down the line. The next edition will be more anthological, the network says (so more like a single season miniseries which Legacy ultimately became). The decision concludes a rather dramatic rise and fall for the high-profile reboot, which revived the action-drama franchise...

    Heres a crazy idea I know it seems kind of nuts, but if you are trying to make me watch your show or see your movie, perhaps it might be better not to disrespect patriotic Americans like me.Wacky, huh?Sure, its hard to believe that the industry that brought us virile superhunk Michael Cera and sexy ultrahottie Lena Dunham could make bad decisions. The geniuses in Hollywood clearly have their fingers on Americans collective pulse, if you define Americans as everyone in a coastal megalopolis who lives within 50 yards of a cruelty-free organic coffee shop.Take 24: Legacy, the new...

    The network has handed out early series orders to two of its most high-profile pilots this season, both hailing from its sibling studio 20th Century Fox TV: 24: Legacy and Lee Daniels' Star. Legacy, which now counts former 24 star Kiefer Sutherland as an executive producer, is picked up for 12 episodes, while Star has scored the traditional 13. 24: Legacy is a new take on the franchise that features an all-new cast of characters and is structured in the same style of the original series. Legacy revolves around a military hero's (Corey Hawkins, Straight Outta Compton, The Walking Dead)...
  • ‘Straight Outta Compton’ Star Corey Hawkins to Topline Fox’s ’24’ Spinoff

    Corey Hawkins will star in the pilot for “24: Legacy” — the “24” revival series in the works at Fox — Variety has learned. The “Straight Outta Compton” alum has nabbed the leading role of Eric Carter in the pilot. As previously reported, the new “24” will not bring back Kiefer Sutherland’s Jack Bauer, so while Hawkins’ character is not a direct replacement, he will topline the potential series. (Sources tell Variety that while only a pilot has been ordered, “24: Legacy” is expected to land a 13-episode order.) Described as strong and smart, Eric came from a very rough...

    It’s official: Fox is making a new version of 24.  Also official: The reboot will have an all-new cast, with producers currently seeking an African-American actor to take over for longtime series star Kiefer Sutherland.  [...] In another switch from the original series, the show will focus less on a lone wolf lead and is more of a “two-hander,” with the Carter character paired with a female co-lead.

    Jack Bauer is passing the torch stopwatch. Fox is developing a 24 spinoff that would revolve around a new twentysomething male terrorist hunter, , franchise overlord Howard Gordon confirmed to TVLine Sunday at the Critics Choice Television Awards. While there are no current plans for Kiefer Sutherlands Jack to appear, its entirely possible his iconic character could pop in and out on a guest-star basis.

    Are Jack Bauer or the real-time format at the heart of 24? Fox brass are likely wrestling with that dilemma as they are weighing a possible new limited series installment of the popular franchise. Thats because the network has been pitched a followup to last summers 24: Live Another Day that may or may not feature 24 signature star Kiefer Sutherland. In the the idea, which comes from 24/24: Live Another Day executive producers Howard Gordon, Evan Katz and Manny Coto, there is a point at which Jack Bauer could come in and fit organically into the story, or they...

    Freddie Prinze Jr. had such an awful experience acting opposite Kiefer Sutherland in 24 that he "wanted to quit the business," he said. The actor explained to ABC News that working with Sutherland was "terrible." "I did 24, and it was terrible. I hated every moment of it," Prinze said. "Kiefer was the most unprofessional dude in the world. That's not me talking trash. I'd say it to his face. I think everyone that's worked with him has said that."

    It has been almost four years since the final episode of 24 aired. 24: Live Another Day will be set in London and will begin airing in the US on May 5 and the UK two days later. The show will follow Jack attempting to stop the assassination of President James Heller while battling CIA agents tracking him, along with the help of Chloe ,who is now working underground with a high-profile hacker. Kiefer is nervous that the revival wont live up to fans expectations and recently told the Daily Telegraph: The fear of not having it fulfil all of...

It was lot's of fun live-blogging Jack Bauer's exploits every week. (Especially the "Freckles" epssodes...LOL)
