TV Guide Magazine has a brief article in which Cherry Jones (Allison Taylor) teases the first two scripts of the eighth season.
“Cherry Jones offered a preview of the first two scripts for next season’s 24 which begins shooting this week. About 18 months have passed since the terrors of Season 7. Jack and Renee still haven’t hooked up, but the world is a better place. Cherry’s character, President Taylor, will be at the United Nations in New York City to sign a peace agreement with a Middle East leader played by Anil Kapoor. “It has more to do with the state of the world, not just the state of us,” Cherry says. Kiefer Sutherland says it’s the first 24 scenario “I actually hope happens.”
