’24: Live Another Day': Setting and Premise Revealed?
Earlier today we heard the fantastic news that FOX’s 2014 ‘24‘ revival ‘24: Live Another Day‘ would return classic CTU analyst Chloe O’Brien (Mary Lynn Rajskub) to assist in Jack Bauer’s latest outing, but very little is known of what the revival series’ story will actually reveal in its 12-episode run. Now, new comments from FOX chairman Kevin Reilly have given us a clue what to expect from ’24: Live Another Day’
“This is going to be set in an international setting,” Reilly explained to reporters at the TCA press tour. “[The writers] got a great idea. I love doing it this way. And I have been really heartened by the amount of equity left in this show. I am stopped by fans all the time who say, ‘Thank you for bringing it back.’ So we’ll talk about that more in January [at the next press tour] but it’s going to be a great format for it.”
Certainly, ‘Live Another Day’ will have its A-game going for it with the returning ’24′ team of writer/producers Howard Gordon (‘Homeland‘), Evan Katz, Manny Coto, David Fury, Robert Cochran, Brian Grazer, Jon Cassar and Kiefer Sutherland. “I just sat down with the team yesterday, and heard the [new] ideas,” said Reilly. “Everybody came back in with a new vibrancy. Howard has said that they always had 12 great episodes. It was the next 12 that used to kill them!”
Well, what say you? Can ’24: Live Another Day’ live up to previous seasons, with half the episodes and a more international setting? What other franchise stars besides Kiefer and Marry Lynn Rajskub would you want to see return to their roles? Give us your thoughts on Jack Bauer’s next mission in the comments!
