Fox to Air ‘24: Legacy’ in 160 Countries

Fox Networks Group will air “24: Legacy,” the next chapter in the Emmy Award-winning action series from 20th Century Fox Television and Imagine Television, in more than 160 countries, after the show’s Feb. 5 premiere on Fox in the U.S.

The series will air day-and-date — or at least within 24 hours of the U.S. — across the majority of Fox’s territories. This is an established part of the studio’s international marketing strategy for viral, high-profile series, such as “The Walking Dead,” “Outcast,” and “Wayward Pines.”

Peter Rice, Fox Networks Group chairman and CEO, said: “The ‘24’ franchise is a true cultural phenomenon and we are excited to allow fans in these 160 countries to experience the next installment all at once. At a time when media is instantaneous and global, viewers around the world will now experience, in real time, the events of this series, which invented real-time storytelling.”

The “24” franchise, which premiered in 2001, has been nominated for 73 Emmy awards, winning for drama series in 2006. Over eight seasons, lead actor Kiefer Sutherland took seven Emmy nominations and one win for lead actor in a drama series. The most recent chapter in the franchise, “24: Live Another Day,” a 12-episode event series that premiered in 2014 on Fox, won three Emmy awards.

24: Legacy,” starring Corey Hawkins, Miranda Otto and Jimmy Smits, “chronicles an adrenaline-fueled race against the clock to stop a devastating terrorist attack on United States soil — in the same real-time format that has propelled this genre-defining series,” according to a statement.

“24: Legacy” reunites the original series’ producing team of Howard Gordon, Brian Grazer, Manny Coto, and Evan Katz; directors Stephen Hopkins and Jon Cassar; and Sutherland, who serves as an executive producer.
