NEW YORK (KPLR) – The buzz has been building, Jack is back. We’re in New York City at the world premiere event for 24: Live another Day.
‘I play a very button downed, he’s this close to being a bureaucrat,’ says actor Benjamin Bratt. ‘He runs the CIA office in London. He’s tasked with capturing and interrogating Jack Bauer but even if he succeeds at that job it’s only going to last about a minute, because Jack always escapes.’
You heard right, this version of the action packed drama starts overseas with some new faces and old favorites.
‘I would say it’s the same 24 that everyone knows and loves but it’s a caffeinated version,’ says Kim Raver who plays Audrey Boudreau.
That’s because this version is a 12 episode series.
It’s been more than four years since the FOX hit left the air.
And Kiefer Sutherland’s character has gone off the grid but you’d best believe Jack Bauer is still trying to save the world.
‘All the rules we think Jack goes by, all the moral code he holds, it might be a little sketchier in there,’ says Executive Producer Robert Cochran. ‘We might find some things we weren’t expecting and that kind of makes it more fun to imagine what he’ll do in a situation.’
When 24 ended its eight season run in 2010, Netflix, Hulu and other streaming services weren’t as mainstream as they are today.
‘I watched the first couple seasons,’ says actor Tate Donovan. ‘That’s the first show I ever binge watched. I got the flu and somebody gave me the box set and I was like, ‘Oh my gosh this is like the best show ever.”
We’ll catch up with Chloe tomorrow on FOX2 news in the morning and we’ll let Kiefer catch us up on how an all new 24 came back to life.
In New York City, Patrick Clark, FOX2 news.
You can watch 24: Live another Day on FOX2 Monday nigh at 7 pm.
