24 Gets A Two-Hour Prequel

The producers of Fox’s “24” are developing a two-hour “prequel” to the upcoming seventh season of the real-time thriller reports Reuters.

The movie, designed to bridge the two-year gap between Seasons 6 and 7, is targeted to air in the Fall before the show’s January return.

The most significant TV casualty of the writer’s strike, production on the seventh season was halted eight episodes in.

As the strike went on, the network decided to push the real-time drama back a full year and are still sticking by that plan.

Production on this TV movie and the remaining sixteen episodes is slated to begin in April.
