Filming begins for Fox's '24: Live Another Day'

Kiefer Sutherland has officially revived his role as the beloved Jack Bauer, as filming on the “24: Live Another Day” miniseries got underway in London, E! Online reported on Wednesday.

Surrounded by overturned cars, fire, and debris, Sutherland looked at home on the set of the TV drama.

Sutherland told E! News that Bauer – who is still on the run four years after the series concluded in 2010 – resurfaces in London as the current TV president is about to visit the British prime minister.

Bauer comes across information that something very bad is about to happen, which will undoubtedly make the “harder” and “angrier” former CTU agent an essential player in countering what’s about to go down.

In addition to series carryovers Mary Lynn Rajskub and William Devane, Tate Donovan has joined the show as the president’s chief of staff. Donvan most recently appeared on CBS’ “Hostages.”

“24: Live Another Day” will consist of 12 episodes and is slated to premiere on Fox on Sunday, May 4.

Personal Take

Fox better do “24: Live Another Day” right. The show’s suits didn’t do a very good job with the first sendoff for the embattled terrorism fighter – and cultural icon – in 2010.

After watching Sutherland’s wimpy character in the now-defunct “Touch,” it will be nice to see him back in the role that has a much lower tolerance for bad-guy nonsense.

Should “24: Live Another Day” do well in the ratings, don’t be surprised to see Fox give it another go around as a full-fledged series.

Just curious, but why is a 12-episode “24” series considered a miniseries, but 10 episodes of USA Network’s “Psych” considered a full season?

Anyway, watch for “24: Live Another Day” on Fox 13 on May 4 in Provo.
