Win ’24: Legacy’ On Blu-ray – Out On Blu-ray™ and DVD Now!

24 July 2017 3:06 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

The clock ticks again with 24: Legacy, the next evolution of the Emmy Award-winning series 24, arriving on Blu-ray™ and DVD on 24th July, from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment. To celebrate the release, we’ve teamed with Twentieth Century Fox for a competition and we have three Blu-rays to give away.

The 13 episode series chronicles an adrenaline-fuelled race against time to stop a devastating terrorist attack on United States soil – in the same real-time format that has propelled this genre-defining series.

Six months ago in Yemen, an elite squad of U.S. Army Rangers, led by Sergeant Eric Carter (Corey Hawkins), killed terrorist leader Sheik Ibrahim Bin-Khalid. In the aftermath, Bin-Khalid’s followers declared a threat 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 has been exposed.

Author: Competitions

To mark the release of 24: Legacy on 24th July, we’ve been given 3 copies to give away on DVD.

Six months ago in Yemen, an elite squad of U.S. Army Rangers, led by Sergeant Eric Carter (Corey Hawkins), killed terrorist leader Sheik Ibrahim Bin-Khalid. In the aftermath, Bin-Khalid’s followers declared a threat 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 has been exposed.

To thwart further attacks, Carter enlists Rebecca Ingram (Miranda Otto), who directed the raid that killed Bin-Khalid; a brilliant and ambitious intelligence officer who has stepped down from her post as National Director of the Counter Terrorist Unit (CTU) to support her husband, Senator John Donovan (Emmy® and Golden Globe® Award winner Jimmy Smits), in his campaign for President of the United States. »

Marvel's Inhumans Video: What's the Key to Medusa's 'Hair Acting'? And Will the Cast Ever See a Full Episode?

21 July 2017 10:50 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

The cast of Marvel’s Inhumans has completed filming the ABC drama’s entire eight-episode freshman run. So, surely by now they as “insiders” have laid eyes on at least one full episode… right?

Graceland alum Serinda Swan, who plays Royal Family matriarch Medusa, and the rest of the ensemble insisted no, they in fact have not, during their visit to TVLine’s Comic-Con interview suite. As such, Swan has yet to truly see her character’s sentient hair in action, outside of the tease in the new trailer that debuted at Comic-Con this week.

24: Legacy: Cancelled; Fox Confirms No Season Two, but Franchise May Continue

8 June 2017 12:25 PM, PDT | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

Last month we reported there would be no second season of the 24: Legacy TV show, at least "for now." Now Fox has confirmed that 24: Legacy is cancelled. On the bright side, though, there is talk that 24 TV series franchise may continue as an anthology or event series. 24: Legacy starred Corey Hawkins as Eric Carter, an Army Ranger who becomes the target of a terrorist organization.

24: Legacy has been cancelled after one season

7 June 2017 9:21 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Fox has cancelled 24: Legacy after just one season, so reports Variety. The action TV series, a spin-off from the original run that starred Kiefer Sutherland, was led by Straight Outta Compton star Corey Hawkins but failed to strike a chord with audiences.

20th Century Fox Television are looking at future iterations of 24, so says the trade, possibly looking at an anthology format based on the original series that aired from 2001-2010.

The 13 episode series of 24: Legacy, which will hit the home formats in the UK very soon, chronicles an adrenaline-fuelled race against time to stop a devastating terrorist attack on United States soil – in the same real-time format that has propelled this genre-defining series.

Emmy Contenders Like Alfre Woodard, Kristen Bell Pull Double Duty in Guest Spots

1 June 2017 10:30 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

it’s becoming more common to see actors pulling double-duty on television; particularly with the ever-growing list of actors appearing in guest spots. Some of those actors could even find themselves eligible for Emmy recognition in more than one category.

For actors enjoying a regular role on television, recognition in the guest category can be an extra bonus. Oscar nominee and four-time Emmy winner Alfre Woodard made an exciting villain on “Luke Cage,” but still found time to appear in two episodes of “A Series of Unfortunate Events,” both for Netflix. As for finding time to play the two roles, she says the shooting dates were “close enough to be, ‘Yikes,’ but I didn’t have to balance Mariah Dillard’s dastardly deeds and the hyper-vigilant grammarian Aunt Josephine in the same shooting schedule.” She then points to her lengthy theater background, noting: “But we’ve all done repertory!”

Guest Actor in a Comedy: The Frontrunners and Dark Horses for 2017 Emmys

1 June 2017 10:15 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

This category caused quite a bit of buzz last year when Peter MacNicol was nominated for “Veep” and then deemed ineligible, as he appeared in too many episodes to qualify as a guest. He was replaced by Peter Scolari of “Girls,” who went on to actually win. Well, this year both Peters are eligible and should return to the category. They’ll face off against some stiff competition, including Louis C.K., who has landed three noms for hosting “SNL” already. Dave Chapelle also hosted a popular episode of “SNL.” Jon Hamm and Fred Willard have both been nominated here before for their roles on “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” and “Modern Family,” while Hugh Laurie has moved into the guest category for his returning character on “Veep.” Daveed Diggs was hilarious as Kimmy’s new love interest on “Kimmy Schmidt,” but he’s more likely to be recognized for his arc as Bow’s laidback brother on “Black-ish.” Guests »
