As the clock ticks toward the climactic final two hours of “24’s” season six on Monday, May 21 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT), Fox has extended the Emmy Award-winning series for two additional seasons through 2008-2009.
“24” was last year’s most Emmy Award-winning television series with five Emmys, including Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series (Kiefer Sutherland) and Outstanding Drama Series. The show promises to combine its unique and trend-setting format with compelling new elements. Each episode will cover one hour of real time, and the season’s entire story will take place in one terrifying day. Viewers again will follow Jack Bauer through a day that none of them will ever forget.
“24” has been nominated for a total of 51 Emmys, including five each for Outstanding Drama Series and Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series for Sutherland. “24” also has received 11 Golden Globe nominations, including five for Best Television Series Drama (winning for season three) and five for Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Drama (with Sutherland winning for season one).
“24,” created by Joel Surnow and Robert Cochran, is a production of Real Time Productions and Imagine Television in association with 20th Century Fox Television. Joel Surnow, Robert Cochran, Howard Gordon, Evan Katz, Jon Cassar, Kiefer Sutherland and Brian Grazer are the executive producers.
