HOMELAND launched its first season in 2011. The series, which won an Outstanding Drama Emmy, as well as two Outstanding Lead Actress Emmys, two Outstanding Writing Emmys and more, is now in its eighth and final season Sundays on Showtime. In its first years, HOMELAND was a cat-and-mouse tug of war between returned prisoner-of-war military hero Nicholas Brody (Damian Lewis) and doggedly determined, bipolar CIA agent Carrie Mathison (Claire Danes), who was – correctly – convinced that Brody had been turned by his captors and was secretly a terrorist. Carrie managed to turn Brody back, they became lovers, and he […]Read On »

In 24: LEGACY, the Counter-Terrorism Unit (CTU) is once again fending off crises in one-hour real-time installments Monday nights on Fox Network.

24: LEGACY: EP Howard Gordon talks returning to the franchise – interview

Fox Network’s new Monday-night thriller 24: LEGACY is in some respects its own show. Corey Hawkins stars as military veteran Eric Carter, who begins working with the Counter-Terrorism Unit (CTU) over the course of one intense day, rather than starting out as a seasoned CTU agent like Kiefer Sutherland’s Jack Bauer. But this is a legacy of the original 24, with some returning characters – like Carlos Bernard’s Tony Almeida – the same ticking-clock time frame, and a lot of the behind the scenes creative team once again in the driver’s seat. Among the returnees is executive producer Howard Gordon, […]Read On »

Depending on how you look at it, 24: LIVE ANOTHER DAY is either a miniseries about Kiefer Sutherland’s redoubtable ex-counter-terrorist agent Jack Bauer, or simply Season 9 of 24, resuming after a four-year break in a twelve-hour frame, airing on Fox Mondays at 9 PM. Howard Gordon, executive producer of 24 for much of its run, is back on 24: LIVE ANOTHER DAY. Gordon also has three other series in production – the multi-award-winning HOMELAND, coming back for its fourth season in the fall, FX’s new TYRANT and TNT’s LEGEND. This raises the question of whether Gordon is secretly affiliated […]Read On »

Exclusive Interview: The scoop on 24: LIVE ANOTHER DAY from executive producer Howard Gordon

24 - SEASON 8 - THE COMPLETE FINAL SEASON DVD | ©2010 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment

Producer/writer Howard Gordon is a very busy man, what with last year’s truckload of Emmys for the first season of Showtime’s HOMELAND, an even bigger slate of nominations for the second season of HOMELAND, the series TYRANT in development at FX and LEGENDS, an espionage series starring Sean Bean, at TNT. This last is likely why Gordon is at TNT’s twenty-fifth anniversary party at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. We talked with Gordon about all his projects (see our upcoming separate interview), but while we’re at it, we got an update on next year’s anticipated mini-season of 24: LIVE ANOTHER DAY […]Read On »
