MANILA, Philippines – 24: Live Another Day is the latest chapter in the thrilling life of Jack Bauer and those around him who are drawn into his tangled web of world-changing suspense and 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.
Set in scenic and historic London, the series open with Jack as a fugitive. It has been four years since his last world-saving but soul-shattering mission. Now in exile, he is still willing to risk his life and freedom to avert yet another global disaster.
The story is set around US President James Heller (William Devane) who is negotiating a treaty in London. Heller is accompanied by his Chief of Staff Mark Boudreau (Tate Donovan), who also happens to be married to Heller’s daughter – and Jack’s former flame, Audrey (Kim Raver). This scenario provides a dramatic and nostalgic flavor into an adrenaline-powered plot.
Revenge is a familiar theme but extraordinarily portrayed in this season in the person of Margot Al-Harazi (Michelle Fairley) and her two children (played by Emily Berrington and Liam Garrigan). The Al-Harazi’s are set to avenge the death of their patriarch.
New characters include CTU head Steve Navarro (Benjamin Bratt, “Law & Order”); CTU 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.
Reprising her role as Chloe O’Brian, Mary Lynn Rajskub, resurfaces seemingly from the other side of the fence this time as the ladylove and partner in crime of the high-profile hacker Adrian Cross (Michael Wincott).
With its unending twist and turns, 24: Live Another Day, is impossible to anticipate and never disappoints.
Guest starring on 24: Live Another Day is Golden Globe Award nominee Stephen Fry.
Since premiering in November 6, 2001, “24” has been nominated for a total of 73 Emmy Awards, winning for Outstanding Drama Series in 2006 and Best Outstanding Lead Actor for Sutherland. Already a worldwide hit, 24 has become one of the most successful franchises in television history.
