Sky 1 HD today announces that the highly anticipated, multi Golden Globe & Emmy Award-winning 24 will premiere with a double episode on Wednesday 7th May at 9pm. For 24 superfans, the show will also transmit simultaneously with Fox’s US East Coast transmission on the morning of Tuesday 6th May at 1am.
Set and shot in London, the heart-stopping 12 episode event series will once again follow the exploits of heroic agent Jack Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland). Four years ago, Jack was a fugitive from justice, now in exile; he nevertheless is willing to risk his life and freedom to avert yet another global disaster.
Tracking Jack are CIA head Steve Navarro (Benjamin Bratt), CIA agent Kate Morgan (Yvonne Strahovski), who is both resourceful and ruthless; Jordan Reed (Giles Matthey), a smart and sophisticated CIA computer tech; and Erik Ritter (Gbenga Akinnagbe), a sharp, strong and arrogant field operative. British national treasure and lifelong 24 fan Stephen Fry also joins the cast as British Prime Minister Trevor Davies.
Calling the shots is James Heller (William Devane), now President of the United States and flanked by his Chief of Staff Mark Boudreau (Tate Donovan), who is married to Heller’s daughter and Jack’s former flame, Audrey (Kim Raver). Meanwhile, a hardened Chloe O’Brian (Mary Lynn Rajskub), Jack Bauer’s former CTU confidante, is now working underground with high-profile hacker Adrian Cross (Michael Wincott).
24: Live Another Day also stars Charles Furness as Peter, an elite young hacker and member of a “hacktivist” organization based in Britain. John Boyega will play a computer tech who flies drones for the military and Michelle Fairley, Tamer Hassan and Colin Salmon also star.
24: Live Another Day comes to Sky 1 HD on Wednesday 7th May at 9pm.
