Jon Cassar to Helm, Exec Produce Fox’s ’24: Live Another Day’

The '24' alum logged 59 episodes with the show originally, won two Emmys

Jon Cassar will return to “24” to exec produce and helm multiple episodes of the revived Agent Jack Bauer drama, it was announced this morning.

As of now, Cassar is slated to exec produce and direct the first two episodes of revival “24: Live Another Day,” which received a 12-episode order from Fox and will debut on the net in May next year. 20th Century Fox TV will be producing the event-style miniseries, and Kiefer Sutherland is set to reprise the title role.

Cassar, who won Emmys for his work on the original iteration of Fox’s “24,” produced and directed 59 episodes of the real-time series, including the telepic “24: Redemption.”

Jon was a profoundly integral part of ‘24’ creatively and culturally,” said showrunner Howard Gordon. “It doesn’t feel like it would be ‘24’ without him, and we’re all just really thrilled to be working with him again.”

Gary Newman, chair of 20th Century Fox TV, added: “Jon Cassar was a critical force in the ongoing evolution of 24. He is a masterful director who has been responsible for many of the best episodes of the series, and Kiefer, Howard, and all of us at the studio value him enormously. We are thrilled to have him back.”

Cassar is repped by Paradigm, and Andrew Deane and Jess Rosenthal at Industry Entertainment.
