FOX is giving 24 another chance. Deadline reports the network is developing a new version of the TV show with a female lead.
Earlier this year, FOX launched 24: Legacy, a spinoff of the original action series. Unfortunately, the show didn’t catch on and was cancelled after just one season. The original 24 series starred Kiefer Sutherland as counter-terrorist agent Jack Bauer. The drama lasted for nine seasons before ending in 2010, followed by a brief revival in 2014.
Now, FOX has given a script commitment to a new 24 reboot from Howard Gordon, Brian Grazer, and Jeremy Doner. Few details about the project have been revealed, but Deadline reports the pilot “centers on a female prosecutor who uncovers a legal conspiracy and has to work against the clock to save a death row inmate facing imminent execution whom she had helped prosecute but may be innocent.”
What do you think? Are you a fan of 24? Would you watch this new reboot?
