Re: 24 returns as limited series

http://www.deadline.com/2013/05/24-r...more-fox-news/

The new 12-episode 24 event series, titled 24: Live Another Day, will likely launch in early May 2014 running into the summer, Fox‘s entertainment chairman Kevin Reilly said during an upfront conference call this morning. The original idea to continue 24 was as a feature, which died after 24 showrunner Howard Gordon and his team concluded that ”24 being compressed into two hours is not 24,” Reilly said. But after Fox announced its event series push six months ago, Gordon sparked to the idea of resurrecting 24 that way. The 12-hour version will keep the real-time nature of the original series, skipping some hours in the 24-hour period it covers. That would actually benefit the show, Reilly said, noting that 24 producers always felt that the spine of each season of 24 were 12 episodes containing major events, with the other 12 providing connective tissue. “Now we’ll get the best part,” Reilly said. While Fox envisions its limited series as stand-alone, one-time events, some, including 24, could become franchises with multiple installments though it is unlikely to have a new 24 every year.

Re: 24 returns as limited series

Since they're bring back 24 as a limited series they should bring back The X-Files for 12 episodes and wrap it all up. Another movie is unlikely but perhaps a miniseries?

Re: 24 returns as limited series

Maybe have the first 2 hours, then Jack gets knocked out or something, then its 12 hours later, shit is hitting the fan and the last 10 hours in a row.

I would love to see Greg Itzin back as Logan the slimeball ex president.

Hey now they can be even MORE realistic. "Jack, where have you been for the last hour?" "I got some lunch, took a bathroom break, and then had a 20 minute nap." Alternatively, "I had to wait for the bus, and then napped next to the homeless guy on the way here."

The following episode takes place after Jack was stuck in traffic on the 405 Freeway between the hours of 4:00 PM and 6:00 PM.

About that...

His now institutionalized wife (who hates him for what he did) stabbed him in the shoulder in Season 6 and almost killed him, but he came back for Season 8. At the end of Season 8, he shot himself in the head, but the paramedics said he'll likely survive, though there might be some brain damage (that was just a preliminary guess on their part though, not based on any tests). So he could potentially come back and be a villain again, though honestly, that would be pretty tired. I think they've gone as far with his character as they can go. He's been good, evil, born again, evil again, and flatlined once. Only Jack and Tony have died and come back more than him.

I think they need to go with a more personal foe and limited scope threat for Jack like Victor Drazen was in Season One rather than make it a case where LA or the entire country is threatened again. Season One was a fairly straightforward assassination plot and revenge attempt, but they still made it exciting. After that they kept trying to outdo themselves each season and it just became more and more ridiculous. Keep it simple but exciting.

It was great. Don't get me wrong, I love Logan as a character and I think he was one of the best 24 villains there was, but my point is, where else is there to go with his character? He's occupied every part of the spectrum from good to evil and incompetent to Machiavellian. If they're going to bring the show back, they should bring in some fresh blood as the bad guy(s).

Re: 24 returns as limited series

I love the part where Jack goes "DAMMIT! Who are you working for?!?!?"

As for the new series: Perhaps they can do it without villains. Have Jack assist with a natural disaster or extreme weather event or something similar.

^That is an interesting thought, having the "enemy" be a natural disaster instead of humans. I would personally enjoy that, but I don't think they would go that route, since 24 likes to play with the theme of the evil of humanity.
