LATEST NEWS:

Wednesday 16th May - "24" renewed for 2 more!

24 has been renewed for at least two more seasons by FOX. Howard Gordon has told The Hollywood Reporter that while the show will remain in real-time and have Kiefer in the title role, it will be set out of non-LA based locations. He also said that there will be a totally new cast while "...some existing cast members may return, but in different roles..." - which should be interesting. Anyway, here is to another two years of Jack.

Tuesday 24th April...

Apologies for lack of updates this past month… I honestly don’t seem to have as much free time as I used to. I will try and update as much as I can, but time wise things are not looking so good. Anyway, here is a bumper update as promised.

Dennis Haysbert’s new film

Goodbye Bafana, Dennis Haysbert’s new film in which he plays Nelson Mandela is due for release on the 11th of May in the UK. The cast includes Joseph Fiennes and Diane Kruger. The film was directed by Billie August.

Here is an extract from the press release:

"Based on the memoirs of Nelson Mandela's prison guard (James Gregory), Goodbye Bafana is the true story of a white South African racist whose life was profoundly altered by the black prisoner he guarded for twenty years. The prisoner's name was Nelson Mandela. Goodbye Bafana tracks the unlikely but profound relationship between these two men. Through their unique friendship, we witness not only Gregory’s growing awareness of man’s inhumanity to man, but South Africa’s evolution from Apartheid to a vibrant democracy."

Reading 24 - TV against the clock

I.B. Tauris Publishers have recently published Reading 24. Here is an extract from the press release:

Reading 24 is the first book to bring together critical discussions of 24 from a wide range perspectives. Entertaining and illuminating, the book looks in detail at the creative and controversial features of 24. It considers, for example, 24's stylistic innovations, its engagement post 9/11 the ‘War on Terror’, and its masking of identities. The pioneering spirit of the show is matched the original arguments on display here, celebrating and censuring 24 - TV on the edge.

You can find more information about the book here and you order the book from Amazon.co.uk or Amazon.com.

Thanks to Nicole from IBTauris for getting in touch.

Winston Churchill inspired 24

Evan Katz talks to the Daily Express...

It was the ultimate test of Winston Churchill’s mettle during the Second World War. And now the makers of hit American TV show 24 have revealed that “Churchill’s dilemma” was the inspiration behind their breathtaking series.

Full Article (Thanks to Dbrackenbury).

Ratings

This Monday (April 23rd) saw the return of Heroes from a long hiatus meaning that 24 took a tumble in the ratings. A new episode of Dancing with the Stars didn’t help either. Episode 19 came in 8th for the night overall and 5th in the key adult demos. Not bad, but not good either.


Monday 2nd April - CTU Manchester

This really is no joking matter, but it did make me chuckle...

The first of four new regional police anti-terror teams in England has come into operation. A Counter Terrorism Unit (CTU) aimed at combating violent extremism has been launched in Greater Manchester. Other CTUs in West Yorkshire, the West Midlands and London are being set up to gather intelligence.

24 Movie "delayed indefinitely"

Reports today suggesting that the 24 film has been "delayed indefinitely"...

Kiefer Sutherland has stated that the planned movie version of 24 has been put on hold because it puts too much strain on the writers. The actor, who plays anti-terrorist agent Jack Bauer, told The Sun: "It's impossible to ask writers to work on the show and then come up with an amazing film we can shoot in the break between series."

Bauer second only to Who

It appears that we really really like Jack here in the UK...

Jack Bauer, is the second most popular character in the United Kingdom according to a new poll. The number one character, ironically, is one that can't be related to a specific actor at all, the BBC's Dr. WHO.

Virgin will allow customers to break contracts

"Virgin Media will allow customers to cease subscribing to the company's services and switch to another provider even if they are locked into a contract.

The announcement comes after the National Consumer Council, which has statutory powers to alert regulators to issues it deems to be contrary to the interests of consumers, threatened to intervene in the ongoing carriage dispute between Virgin and Sky."

The Monday Ratings War

A good read about the ratings war that 24 is currently involved with on Monday nights at the LA Times:

"Although the fireworks between titans "Grey's Anatomy" of ABC and "CSI" of CBS have been colorful, another unexpected contest broke out in January when Fox's "24" returned to Mondays at 9 p.m. to face off against CBS' "Two and a Half Men" and NBC's "Heroes." Combined, the triumvirate of shows can draw as many as a whopping 45 million total viewers, and all three are in the top 20 shows in the highly desirable demographic of 18- to 49-year-olds."

Marisol Nichols Interview

24 criticised over torture scenes

"24 producers have been criticised over the show's portrayal of interrogation techniques. American military chiefs voiced their concern about the hit series during a meeting with the 24 team. Producers were asked to tone down violent scenes of torture due to fears that the United States is being shown in a bad light due to the programme."

Sutherland responds to 24 criticism

Kiefer Sutherland has admitted that he is horrified to learn that scenes from 24 are being copied by US army officers. The actor - who plays ruthless Jack Bauer on the hit series - has offered to visit the West Point Military Academy to speak to cadets about interrogation techniques.

Thursday 1st March - Sky One pulled from Virgin Media

Sky's basic channels (Sky One, Sky Two, Sky News, Sky Sports News, Sky Travel and Sky Travel Extra) are no longer available to Virgin Media customers. That means no more 24 for Virgin Media customers.

From the BBC

Virgin Media customers have lost access to some BSkyB channels after the deadline passed for the two companies to resolve a row over TV rights. The broadcasters had until midnight on Wednesday to reach a deal which would have allowed cable company Virgin Media to continue showing basic Sky channels.

Virgin Media has accused BSkyB of raising its prices too much, but BSkyB has said the higher fees are justified.

Talks between the two broadcasters broke down last week.

This is obviously pretty big news for fans of 24 who are Virgin Media customers. Have your say in the forums or email me your comments.
