Twentieth Century Fox Television, Imagine Television and Fox are sending the production of 24: Live Another Day from the US to London to revive the drama franchise starring Kiefer Sutherland.

24: Live Another Day a production of 20th Century Fox Television and Imagine Television in association with Teakwood Lane Productions will make its debut in the summer of 2014 on Fox.

Howard Gordon, Brian Grazer and Kiefer Sutherland will executive produce, along with an additional team to be announced. The original series, which had its last American broadcast on 24 May 2010 after eight seasons and a two-hour telefilm, was created by Joel Surnow and Robert Cochran.

"We wanted the show's return to be an event, and part of that was putting Jack in a very different context. Four years ago, we left Jack a fugitive from justice and we're going to pick him up four years later in London," co-show-runner and executive producer Evan Katz explained.
