    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 Imagine’s Brian Grazer, as well as former The Killing writer-producer Jeremy Doner and the franchise’s 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...

    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 Sutherland’s Jack to appear, it’s 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. That’s because the network has been pitched a followup to last summer’s 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 won’t live up to fans’ expectations and recently told the Daily Telegraph: ‘The fear of not having it fulfil all of...

    I have to say, I did not see this one coming at all. It's one thing to revive a series that's been dormant for many years, like TNT has done successfully with Dallas, but has there ever been a case of a show coming back only four years after it ended? But hey, I'm not a TV programming executive and I don't want to be. Hands up if you want to see Jack back! Entertainment Weekly reports: For 24 miniseries/limited series, we’re hearing Fox is actually currently looking at a 13-episode order for the show. For a cable series, that’s...

    Fox is looking to restart the clock on 24. The network is looking to bring back the Emmy-winning real-time thriller as a limited series event, Deadline reports. No deals are in place in front of or behind the screen, but Kiefer Sutherland is said to be in early talks to reprise his role as Jack Bauer. Former 24 boss Howard Gordon, meanwhile, would likely oversee the revival, per Deadline. News of a possible 24 rebirth comes just hours after Fox pulled the plug on Sutherland’s Touch. Thoughts? Does this sound like the best or worst idea ever?

    Four years ago "24" actress Mary Lynn Rajskub was quoted as saying "I got into acting to avoid politics." Unlike most of her liberal colleagues, Miss Rajskub didn't discuss the subject and acted very accepting towards conservatives. The actress appeared on the Laura Ingraham Show and was photographed in Rush Limbaugh's studio. Everything changed the moment Rush Limbaugh planted an innocent tiny kiss on her at 2006 Heritage Foundation Panel discussing the show 24. Outrage was the reaction amongst her peers. Ex-boyfriend Duncan Trussell supposedly asked "when he kissed you did he suck out your soul and replace it with...

    [...] What about the show’s past depiction of Muslims? In the second season, we worked with the Muslim community, and I know we did a PSA. But, if you want to just take a look at 9/11, they were Muslims. Deal with it. It’s a fact, and Muslim extremists exist, and we have also done Christian right extremists, and we have also done political, Eastern block terrorists, and those who had financial and religious motives — all kinds. We weren’t going to pretend that the 22 hijackers in 9/11 weren’t Muslim. By the same token, I do believe you have...

    Jack Bauer stares down an unhappy ending on "24" 6:49pm EDT LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - For fans of hit TV show "24," this will come as no great shock: the show's creator on Friday promised that when the action program finishes its run this month, an unhappy ending will greet Jack Bauer. U.S. government agent Bauer, played by Kiefer Sutherland, has saved the world time-and-again and been thanked for his efforts with any number of personal tragedies, including the death of loved ones. So it seemed natural that in the final seconds of his final show, he should face hardship...

    "Stuff Christian Culture Likes" #148 -- Jack Bauer. Men in Christian culture have giant man-crushes on Jack Bauer. He is the prototype of Christian culture's ideal male, save for the profession of faith. He's macho, tenacious and tech-savvy (all qualities that Christian culture holds dear) and he's working his ass off under an apocalyptic deadline, which Christians can relate to. They even find themselves praying for Jack Bauer during the show and then laughingly confess to this when discussing last week's episode of 24 at Bible study.

In fact, I can’t think of the last show that kept me on the edge of my seat like 24 did during its first few seasons. Its ability to attack terrorism in a way that takes no prisoners was not only timed perfectly after 9/11 it also provided a captivating story. Each commercial break felt like an eternity and the weeks in-between episodes were true tests of patience.The 24 we see...
