The drama series "24 Hours" about the agent of the Los Angeles counterterrorism unit Jack Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland), who only had to cope with various dangerous situations within 24 hours, ran on Fox for eight seasons and ended in 2010. The project has won numerous Emmy awards and received two Golden Globe statuettes for Best Drama Series and Best Actor on TV.|
The show has gained such success and love of the audience that Fox can not part with it, making all new attempts to return it in one form or another to the screens. First, four years after the closure, the channel decided to revive the project in the form of the mini-series "24 Hours: Live Another Day", the main character of which again became Jack Bauer, played by Sutherland. Then in 2016 it was announced that the series would be relaunching with new characters. The project was titled "24 Hours: The Legacy" and starred Corey Hawkins and Miranda Otto. The series ran for only one season and was canceled this summer.
Now, according to sources from the Deadline portal, Fox has begun developing another kind of reboot of its incredibly successful series. The format of the show will remain the same, events will develop in real time for 24 hours, only this time the main character will be a woman, and the plot will be devoted not to terrorism, but to criminal justice.
Details are not yet available, but it is known that the new version of "24 hours" will focus on the prosecutor, who will have to uncover a legal conspiracy and fight time to save a prisoner from the death penalty. It was the main character who led a lawsuit against him, but the poor fellow may be innocent. There is also a possibility that the series will be filmed in the now fashionable genre of anthology, that is, each season will be devoted not only to a new business, but also to new characters.
The show will be produced by 20th Century Fox TV and Imagine TV, and the original franchise will be executive produced by Howard Gordon and Brian Grazer. Gordon, along with the writer and producer of the detective series "Murder" Jeremy Doner, will also work on the script for the future project.
