24: Live Another Day is a new event series set to restart the ticking clock on the groundbreaking and Emmy Award-winning drama 24. The 12 episode saga reunites the Emmy Award-winning team of executive producer Howard Gordon; star and executive producer Kiefer Sutherland; co-creator Robert Cochran; executive producers, Evan Katz, Manny Coto, David Fury, Brian Grazer; and director Jon Cassar. It will also retain the real-time, fast-paced format with split screens and interweaving story lines as the original television series.
Set and shot in London, the suspenseful event series once again will follow the exploits of agent Jack Bauer (Sutherland), who was a fugitive from justice four years ago. Now an exile, he nevertheless is willing to risk his life and freedom to avert yet another global disaster. Tracking Jack are CIA head Steve Harris (Benjamin Bratt); CIA agent Kate Morgan (Yvonne Strahovski), who is both resourceful and ruthless; Jordan Reed (Giles Matthey), a smart and sophisticated CIA computer tech; and Erik Ritter (Gbenga Akinnagbe), a sharp, strong and arrogant field operative. Calling the shots is James Heller (William Devane), now President of the United States. Heller is flanked by his Chief of Staff Mark Boudreau (Tate Donovan), who is married to Heller’s daughter, and Jack’s former flame, Audrey (Kim Raver). Meanwhile, a hardened Chloe O’Brian (Mary Lynn Rajskub), Bauer’s CTU confidante, is now working underground with high-profile hacker Adrian Cross (Michael Wincott). Guest stars on 24: Live Another Day include Golden Globe Award winner Judy Davis (Life with Judy Garland) and Golden Globe Award nominee Stephen Fry (Alice in Wonderland, Bones). The harrowing day will have Jack attempting to thwart an unthinkable terrorist attack that could change the world forever.
The clock starts ticking on May 5, 2014. Check out the new teaser trailer for Fox’s 24: Live Another Day, below.
