The Clock Ticks Again With A New Trailer For ’24: Legacy’
The clock ticks again, as 24: LEGACY arrives on US tv screens in February. This new evolution of the Emmy Award-winning 24 franchise sees Straight Outta Compton’s Corey Hawkins step into the very large shoes of Jack Bauer, as Sergeant ERIC CARTER, an elite squad Army Ranger, who finds himself racing against the clock to stop a devastating terrorist attack on United States soil.
Six months ago in Yemen, an elite squad of U.S. Army Rangers, led by Sergeant ERIC CARTER (Hawkins), killed terrorist leader Sheik Ibrahim Bin-Khalid. In the aftermath, Bin-Khalid’s followers declared a fatwah against Carter, his squad and their families, forcing them into federal witness protection. But a recent attempt on Carter’s own life makes it clear to him that his team is now exposed.
To thwart further attacks, Carter enlists REBECCA INGRAM (Miranda Otto – Homeland), who quarterbacked the raid that killed Bin-Khalid. She’s a brilliant and ambitious intelligence officer who has stepped down from her post as National Director of CTU to support her husband, SENATOR JOHN DONOVAN (Emmy and Golden Globe Award winner Jimmy Smits – NYPD Blue, Dexter, The West Wing), in his campaign for President of the United States. Decades of sleepless nights and missed anniversaries landed her at the top. With the White House within their grasp, can she truly embrace a new role as First Lady? Or will her love of the action draw her back in? Together, in this fast-paced thrill ride,
Carter and Ingram uncover a sophisticated terrorist network that will force them to ask: “Who can we trust?” As they battle Bin-Khalid’s devotees, they are forced to confront their own identities, families and pasts.
24: LEGACY comes from Academy and Emmy Award-winning executive producer Brian Grazer (A Beautiful Mind, 24), writers and executive producers Manny Coto and Evan Katz (24, 24: Live Another Day), director and executive producer Stephen Hopkins (24) and executive producer and original series star Kiefer Sutherland.
There’s still no official news on a UK pick up for 24: Legacy, but I would be amazed if it isn’t on Sky 1 in February!
