Fox, appearing this morning at the TCA Winter Press Tour 2014, announced premiere dates for event series 24: Live Another Day, and new series Surviving Jack, Gang Related, and Seth MacFarlane’s science passion-project Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey. 24 is getting its old Monday 9 PM slot, Surviving Jack will follow American Idol‘s result show, and Gang Related is getting an early summer run as planned.
The clock resets when 24: Live Another Day premieres with a special two-hour television event on Monday, May 5 at 8 PM, followed by its time period premiere the following week in 24‘s signature Monday 9 PM slot. Set and shot in London, the suspenseful event series again will follow the exploits of agent Jack Bauer (Sutherland) as he attempts to thwart a terrorist attack. Retaining the real-time format with split screens and interweaving storylines, the series also stars Mary Lynn Rajskub, Kim Raver, and William Devane reprising their original roles. Newcomers include Yvonne Strahovski, Giles Matthey, Gbenga Akinnagbe, Michael Wincott, and Judy Davis. The event series reunites the Emmy-winning team of executive producer Howard Gordon; star and executive producer Sutherland; co-creator Robert Cochran; executive producers Evan Katz, Manny Coto, David Fury and Brian Grazer; and executive producer and director Jon Cassar.
