This guy sure likes to keep busy. Despite being the showrunner of not one but two potential series (Showtime’s Homeland and NBC’s REM), Howard Gordon is somehow still finding time to write a sequel to his debut novel Gideon’s War. Simon and Schuster announced Hard Target (formerly known as Allegiance) scheduled for release in January… View Article

Here’s an interview I recorded this morning on FOX 5’s Good Day New York. It’s almost entirely about his novel Gideon’s War, but he gets asked about the 24 movie at the very end (final 20 seconds) to which he replies it’s not happening right away but is still happening.
This is actually a pretty candid interview where Howard Gordon gets grilled about the “political correctness” of the 24 in recent years with the numerous “Go Green” PSA’s in Season 7 (which he says was a Rupert Murdoch mandate) and the Season 4 pro-Muslim PSA’s with Kiefer Sutherland. Skip to 4:55 if you want to… View Article

His main character hates guns, searches for peaceful solutions and comes across as a genuine ambassador of good.

But Gordon, a Long Island… View Article
