FOX has handed out early series orders to two of its most high-profile pilots this season – “24: Legacy” and the Lee Daniels-produced “Star”.
The “24” continuation, which will be produced but won’t star Kiefer Sutherland, has scored twelve episodes. “Star” has been green lit a more traditional thirteen.
This new take on “24” features an all-new cast of characters and is structured in the same style of the original series. The story revolves around a military hero (Corey Hawkins) who returns to the U.S. and the trouble that follows him back – compelling him to ask CTU for help in saving his life.
Miranda Otto, Jimmy Smits and Dan Bucatinsky co-star in the series which Manny Coto, Evan Katz, Howard Gordon and Brian Grazer are producing. Stephen Hopkins directed the pilot.
Meanwhile “Star” revolves around three girls (newcomers Jude Demorest, Ryan Destiny and Brittany O’Grady) who come together to form a band. Star details their rise to the top in a challenging business. Benjamin Bratt and Queen Latifah also star.
