American remakes often use the original idea as a starting point. Like how the distinctively Israeli story of Prisoners of War, inspired by true events, became a thriller bears little resemblance to the original show.
Homeland hardly needs to be a remake of anything, since it's so obviously just 24, but with more cable values vs broadcast (ie, more focus on characters, less frantic need to keep audiences from changing the channel by throwing every crazy plot twist at us all the time.)
