Jack Bauer is back and returning exclusively to Sky 1 HD. The Emmy award-winning 24 is coming to London in February to film a brand new series after a four year absence. In addition, Sky customers will be able to revisit the entire 24 series through Sky’s On Demand service.
Acquired exclusively in the UK by Sky 1 HD from Twentieth Century Fox Television Distribution, 24: LIVE ANOTHER DAY will see Kiefer Sutherland return as Jack Bauer for this event series with a thrilling international adventure. Breaking from the usual formula, the series will restart the clock for a limited run of twelve episodes. Mary Lynn Rajskub will reprise her memorable role as Chloe, William Devane stars as James Heller and Kim Raver will play Audrey Raines. Howard Gordon is returning to executive produce and Jon Cassar, who produced and directed 24 from seasons 2 to 7, will also return to executive produce and direct episodes. Evan Katz and Manny Coto will serve as show runners and executive producers.
Sarah Wright, Controller, Acquisitions, Sky said “We’re thrilled to be bringing 24: LIVE ANOTHER DAY to Sky 1 HD. We remain passionate about bringing the best of the US to Sky customers and the return of the iconic 24 is a hugely exciting TV event.”
Adam MacDonald, Director, Sky 1 HD said “’I’m delighted that Jack and the team at 24 are returning exclusively to Sky 1 HD. The scale, ambition and fast-paced energy of the series epitomize everything we look for in a drama for the channel. I can’t wait to bring it back to our customers.”
Kiefer Sutherland said, “24 has always had such a global sensibility. But to be able to tell this intense 24-style story with the beauty of Europe’s history and architecture as the backdrop is going to be fascinating. Hopefully, by the time you’re finished watching an episode, you’ll feel like you’ve been there…on the edge of your seat.”
The series has yet to start but is expected in May 2014.
