From beginning to end, it was quality TV. Loads of action, loads of Jack (Kiefer Sutherland) being Jack, loads of character deaths, lots of twists and swerves and above all else a smart program that doesn’t just end with fluffy […]Read On »

Count me as swerved. The opening of 24: LIVE ANOTHER DAY, “7:00PM to 8:00PM,” showed that at the last minute, Heller (William Devane) was not standing in the middle […]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

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 »

TOUCH creator/writer/producer Tim Kring has a fundamental attraction to storylines about things that bring people together. In Kring’s HEROES, which ran for four seasons on NBC, people from all over the world discovered they had different abilities that caused them to seek one another out and join forces. In Fox’s TOUCH, which has its first-season finale tonight, young Jake Bohm, played by David Mazouz, has the ability to see hidden patterns and probabilities that are unknown to most people. Jake’s father Martin, played by Kiefer Sutherland (a producer on the series), tries to follow the clues given him by his […]Read On »

After watching THE X FACTOR host Steve Jones struggle throughout the first season, it became quite clear that Ryan Seacrest is a natural when it comes to handling contestants, overruns and political correctness on AMERICAN IDOL. This was not lost on Fox Entertainment President Kevin Reilly who says that job “is much harder than meets the idea.” “Everyone has come to value the idea of a Ryan Seacrest,” says Reilly. “It’s a very hard job to do.” The question is, how much is he worth? If Fox has it’s way, they definitely want to keep him in the IDOL fold, […]Read On »

Will FRINGE be back for a Season 5? That was one of the questions looming large during Fox’s TCA executive session where Entertainment President Kevin Reilly says he has a hard decision to make on the show in the coming weeks. “FRINGE has been a point of pride,” says Reilly. “I share the passion for the show as the fans have. Fox, having let down genre fans in the past, put one on [and kept it on]. I love that the fans stuck with us when it went to Friday nights. It vastly improved our Friday night.
