’24’ production shut down

Sutherland to undergo minor surgery

Production has temporarily shut down on Fox’s “24” as star Kiefer Sutherland undergoes minor surgery.

Sutherland must repair a cyst that ruptured last week; production is expected to resume on “24” by the end of this week.

“We are temporarily suspending production of ’24’ while our friend and colleague Kiefer Sutherland undergoes a medical procedure,” 20th Century Fox TV said in a statement. “We hope to resume production shortly and do not anticipate any disruption in the broadcast of this season’s episodes.”

According to Sutherland’s reps, the thesp “looks forward to returning to work next week.”

“While Kiefer Sutherland is frustrated to miss even one day of work, he and Fox decided together that it would be best to complete this minor elective procedure now as a precaution as opposed to six weeks from now when production wraps,” Sutherland’s P.R. reps said in a statement.

Sutherland is currently shooting the eighth season of “24,” which is potentially the show’s last. Thesp is aggressively looking to move the franchise to the feature world, however.

Sutherland is known for his work ethic on “24” — when he was required to serve jail time in 2007, the actor made sure to schedule it during a holiday hiatus — so that production wasn’t impacted on the show.
