Imagine Entertainment and Teakwood Lane Productions are currently in pre-production on the new 20th Century Fox TV series “24: Live Another Day”, which is a 12-episode run based on the mega-hit Fox network and worldwide syndicated political spy action thriller series “24” which spanned 192 episodes over eight seasons, and pulled in countless awards including 68 Emmy nominations, with 20 wins. The casting directors for “24: Live Another Day” are auditioning actors for lead roles, supporting roles, and recurring roles in Los Angeles. The show will be set in London, UK and will be filmed there for this limited first-run season. The extras will be cast in London.
“24: Live Another Day” will feature the return of Jack Bauer, and the series would essentially represent the twelve “most important” hours of a typical original “24” season, with jumps forward between hours as needed. Four years ago, Jack left off a fugitive from justice, and now we pick him up four years later in London. Jack is on the run and this new series takes viewers into the streets of London and in places that break new ground for the show. Jack’s loose on the streets of Europe, hunted by and hunting bad guys
Golden Globe Award winner Kiefer Sutherland is returning as the central character Jack Bauer. In regards to reprising his role, Sutherland recently stated, “Make no mistake, my goal is to knock your socks off”. Also set to return is two-time Screen Actors Guild Awards nominee Mary Lynn Rajskub playing Jack Bauer’s most trusted colleague Chloe O’Brian. Screen Actors Guild Awards nominee Kim Raver is returning as Audrey Raines, and Golden Globe Award nominee William Devane is back playing James Heller, who becomes President of the United States.
Academy Award winner Brian Grazer will produce “24: Live Another Day” for Imagine Entertainment. Two-time Primetime Emmy Award winner Jon Cassar has been brought on board by Twentieth Century Fox to executive produce, and also direct various episodes. Casser executive produced the first seven seasons of “24”. Primetime Emmy Award winner Manny Coto, who was also executive producer for “24” and “Dexter”, will exec produce “24: Live Another Day”. Three-time Primetime Emmy Award winner Howard Gordon will executive produce for his company Teakwood Lane Productions, which has an extensive production deal with 20th Century Fox TV.

Various directors work different episodes during the season. In television shows composed of individual episodes, the television director’s role differs from that of a film director in that he or she may work only on some television episodes as opposed to the director of an entire film production. In episodic television productions, the major creative control resides with a producer of the show. The television producer(s) with creative control is called the showrunner(s) (in this case, Evan Katz and Manny Coto).
Kiefer Sutherland – Jack Baurer
Mary Lynn Rajskub – Chloe O’Brian
Kim Raver – Audrey Raines
William Devane – James Heller
This new 12-hour version will keep the real-time nature of the original series, skipping some hours in the 24-hour period it covers.
