fox 24: Live Another Day (2014)

35 posts in this topic

It has now been revealed that 24: Live Another Day (that's the official title) will air in May 2014 for 12 episodes. Fox chairman Kevin Reilly told reporters today on a conference call that plans for a movie have been scrapped as compressing the show to only two hours just didn't work. However, this limited series will only take place across 12 hours and while it WILL pan out chronologically, they will also skip hours. Apparently, the studio sees "franchise ability" in 24's return and it could return for another series in 2015.

NICE!

I loved the show. I'm just wondering if making it 12 hours instead of 24 and skipping hours as they said will be the same as the original idea.

We will see.

24: Live Another Day is set several years after season 8 and will feature 12 episodes, spanning 24 hours. Some hours of the day will be skipped allowing for ?tighter? story telling. Howard Gordon and David Fury are penning this reboot. ?It?s great to have Jack back. ?24? redefined the drama genre, and as we reimagine the television miniseries, this iconic show will again break new ground for the network,? said Kevin Reilly. ?The series remains a global sensation, and everyone at FOX is thrilled to be back at work with Kiefer, Howard and the incredibly creative ?24? team.?

Official Press Release:

JACK IS BACK!!!

NEW ACTION-PACKED EVENT SERIES ?24: LIVE ANOTHER DAY?

TO RESTART ICONIC CLOCK IN SUMMER 2014 ON FOX

Kiefer Sutherland to Return as JACK BAUER in New Event Series

Produced by 20th Century Fox Television, Imagine Television and Howard Gordon?s Teakwood Lane Productions

FOX has ordered 24: LIVE ANOTHER DAY, a thrilling new tent-pole event series set to restart the clock on the groundbreaking and Emmy Award-winning drama franchise starring Kiefer Sutherland. Produced by 20th Century Fox Television, Imagine Television and Howard Gordon?s Teakwood Lane Productions, 24: LIVE ANOTHER DAY will make its historic debut in the summer of 2014 on FOX.

The announcement was made this morning by Kevin Reilly, Chairman, Fox Broadcasting Company; Dana Walden and Gary Newman, Chairmen, Twentieth Century Fox Television; and Brian Grazer, Chairman, Imagine Entertainment.

The high-octane saga will reunite showrunner Howard Gordon with Sutherland and retain the real-time, pulse-pounding, fast-paced format with split screens and complex interweaving storylines, with 12 episodes representing 24 hours. The suspenseful event series once again follows the exploits of heroic agent JACK BAUER (Sutherland), who will resume his story several years following the events of the final season.

?It?s great to have Jack back. ?24? redefined the drama genre, and as we reimagine the television miniseries, this iconic show will again break new ground for the network,? said Reilly. ?The series remains a global sensation, and everyone at FOX is thrilled to be back at work with Kiefer, Howard and the incredibly creative ?24? team.?

?When Howard came to us saying he had an idea for a new chapter of ?24,? he quite simply had us at ?hello,?? remarked 20th Century Fox Television Chairmen Gary Newman and Dana Walden. ??24? is a signature series for this studio, beloved by critics and audiences worldwide. Howard?s idea to revive the franchise as an event series couldn?t be timelier, and with the brilliant Kiefer Sutherland on board to reprise his iconic role, we can?t wait to get started.?

Added Imagine Television Chairman Brian Grazer, ?I'm both excited and proud that Howard, Kiefer, and I, along with ours partners at 20th and Fox, have this new opportunity to give ?24? fans what they've been asking for ? more Jack Bauer. It's been my experience that people love Jack Bauer because he's a guy who cuts through the red tape and gets the hardest things done. I am certain 24: LIVE ANOTHER DAY will again have a huge impact on our culture.?

?The response to ?24? is unlike anything I have ever experienced as an actor before,? noted Sutherland. ?To have the chance to reunite with the character, Jack Bauer, is like finding a lost friend. The story ideas from Howard Gordon are exciting and fresh, and will not disappoint. Great thanks to 20th Century Fox Television, Imagine Television and the FOX network for this opportunity. Make no mistake, my goal is to knock your socks off. See you soon.?

?Jack Bauer has always been an exciting, thrilling character, and I confess that I?ve missed him. I think the audience has too,? said executive producer Howard Gordon who served as showrunner for most of the series? run and won multiple Emmy Awards for his work. ?The character has evolved through the years, and this new and exciting event series format is perfect to tell the next chapter of his story and continue to reflect how the world is changing. Fans can rest assured that the Jack they know and love will be back.?

Originally premiering November 6, 2001, ?24? was nominated for a total of 73 Emmy Awards, winning for Outstanding Drama Series in 2006. Over eight seasons, Kiefer Sutherland garnered seven Emmy Award nominations and one win for Outstanding Lead Actor ? Drama Series. While the series gained global recognition, Sutherland?s portrayal of the legendary character penetrated the American psyche like no other dramatic television character to become part of the cultural lexicon.

24: LIVE ANOTHER DAY is a production of 20th Century Fox Television and Imagine Television in association with Teakwood Lane Productions. Howard Gordon, Brian Grazer and Kiefer Sutherland will executive produce, along with an additional team to be announced. The original series, which had its last American broadcast on May 24, 2010, was created by Joel Surnow and Robert Cochran.

2015 the series returns :o

My thoughts. Kill off Jack in the "12" series. Then bring a new guy in and start off a new series/season.

I'm amazed it took this long to figure this out. Try to take a show that runs for 24 1 hour episodes, perfectly in time over 24 hours.... try to make it work in 2 hours.... There was never a chance. It would never have been "24". It would have just been an action movie with possibly a similar cast, most likely mostly different.

You don't understand... Kiefer is 24. Without him there'd be no intensity.

I kinda have to agree, but I can't say it was "what it never was'. Homeland filled the 24 absence. Nothing can never replace Jack. Jack replaces nothing.
