24: LIVE ANOTHER DAY is a thrilling new event series set to restart the ticking clock on the groundbreaking and Emmy Award-winning drama.
The high-octane 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 also will retain the real-time, pulse-pounding, fast-paced format with split screens and interweaving storylines.
Set and shot in London, the suspenseful event series once again will follow the exploits of heroic agent JACK BAUER (Sutherland). Four years ago, Jack was a fugitive from justice. 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, “Law & Order”); CIA agent KATE MORGAN (Yvonne Strahovski, “Dexter”), who is both resourceful and ruthless; JORDAN REED (Giles Matthey, “Jobs”), a smart and sophisticated CIA computer tech; and ERIK RITTER (Gbenga Akinnagbe, “The Wire”), a sharp, strong and arrogant field operative. Calling the shots is JAMES HELLER (William Devane, “The Dark Knight Rises”), now President of the United States. Heller is flanked by his Chief of Staff MARK BOUDREAU (Tate Donovan, “Damages”), who is married to Heller’s daughter — Jack’s former flame, AUDREY (Kim Raver, “Revolution”). Meanwhile, a hardened CHLOE O’BRIAN (Mary Lynn Rajskub, “Firewall”), Bauer’s CTU confidante, is now working underground with high-profile hacker ADRIAN CROSS (Michael Wincott, “The Crow”). 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.

’24: Live Another Day’ Trailer aka Why Jack Bauer Might Be TV’s Greatest Comeback Ever
Pardon us if we get a little Chandler Bing on you here, but, could we be more excited about the return of Jack Bauer, after seeing the first full trailer for “24: Live Another Day”?
The clip, in which CIA honcho Steve Navarro (Benjamin Bratt) discovers fugitive Jack (Emmy and Golden Globe winner Kiefer Sutherland) is on the loose in London, also details how Jack is on a mission to prevent, among other things, the assassination of U.S. President James Heller (William Devane).
Heller’s death on London soil would spark a world war, Jack tells pal Chloe (Mary Lynn Rajskub), but, with his gun drawn in trademark J.B. style, it’s clear Jack is going to be trying to save the world with his own government on his back.
So, Jack’s back, Sutherland looks like he hasn’t lost a single step in the almost four years since the “24” series finale, Chloe and Jack are working together again, they have a deep bench of supporting cast, the action is set in London (pleaseohplease let the Eye have a cameo in the action), and, though we give it up to the “24” gang for making that restrictive hour-by-hour format work for eight seasons, it should ramp up the intensity even further now that a whole season is being boiled down to a cable-drama-ish 12 episodes.
