Fox’s ‘24: Live Another Day’ to Shoot in London

Network plans to roll out the 12-episode limited series next summer

Jack Bauer is back on the map — this time, in London.

24: Live Another Day,” the limited series followup to Fox’s hit Kiefer Sutherland starrer, will lens across the Pond, the network announced. “Live Another Day” marks the first production of the franchise to shoot abroad since the 2008 TV movie “24: Redemption,” which was filmed outside Cape Town, South Africa.

When fans of the Emmy-winning skein last saw Sutherland’s iconic counter terrorism agent Jack Bauer, he was a fugitive from justice. The limited event series, slated for a summer debut, picks up four years later in the franchise, with Bauer on the fly in the U.K.

Fox announced the return of the Jack Bauer franchise as a 12-seg limited series during the network’s upfront in May. Series will take place over 12 hours, instead of “24’s” original daylong format. Fox chief Kevin Reilly sees potential for further iterations of the “24” franchise, should the limited series perform well on the net next year.

“24” concluded its initial series run on Fox in 2010 after eight seasons.

The limited series joins a stable of event programs in Fox’s 2014 arsenal, including “Broadchurch” and “Wayward Pines.”

London has played host to a number of American TV productions as of late, with “Elementary,” “Parks and Recreation” and “Bones” among the series that have ventured across the Atlantic.

Imagine Television and 20th Century Fox Television are producing “24: Live Another Day” with Howard Gordon’s shingle, Teakwood Lane Productions. Gordon, Sutherland and Brian Grazer will exec produce, with an additional team still to be announced.
