In today’s roundup, “Me, Myself & I” adds recurring cast members, and Amazon announced the premiere date of “Lore.”

Casting

Ed Begley, Jr., and Tia Mowry are joining the cast of “Me, Myself & I” on a recurring basis in Season 1. Begley Jr. will play Governor Justin, the future version of Alex Riley’s stepbrother.

’24’ Could Return Again — But As An Entirely Different Kind of Show, Fox Execs Say

8 August 2017 11:34 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

If the “24” clock ticks again, it will be for very different reasons.

Fox executives confirmed Tuesday that executive producer Howard Gordon and Imagine TV’s Brian Grazer are kicking around completely new ideas for the real-time format that shifts away from its roots. A new version won’t likely focus on the show’s bread-and-butter terrorism and potential apocalypse storylines.

The decision to rethink the “24” universe comes after Fox opted not to bring back revival “24: Legacy” for another season. “24: Legacy” was pitched as a limited series, but might have continued had ratings been higher.

Fox TV Group chairman Dana Walden said “24: Legacy” still succeeded in giving viewers “a taste again” of the “24” franchise, and “whetted their appetites. We’re exploring where the next version might live.”

Walden said Gordon and Grazer “have an exciting idea that was very compelling, but we’re in the early stages.”

How Donald Trump and James Comey Destroyed the Way Film and TV Depict the FBI and CIA

29 June 2017 8:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Donald Trump’s battles with intelligence agencies and the many controversial moves by former FBI director James Comey may change the way Hollywood approaches stories from that world.

Stories of the FBI and CIA usually focus on a simple good guy/bad guy approach. The agencies, with the backing of the United States government, take on evildoers. On CBS’ “Criminal Minds,” that means chasing down brutal killers. On Fox’s “The X-Files,” that has meant exploring a shadowy conspiracy by a cabal far removed from the elected government.

But that’s all starting to change, and the battle between government officials and the intelligence community, which might have seemed an unnecessary plot a few years ago (“Wait? Who are audiences supposed to root for? Aren’t they on the same side?”) is now front and center.

24: Legacy has been cancelled

9 June 2017 12:30 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Rob Leane Jun 9, 2017

There will be no second season for Corey Hawkins' 24: Legacy, but Fox is already considering reboot options...

24: Legacy is no more. Fox has cancelled the show, opting not to press ahead with a second season of the Corey Hawkins-starring relaunch of the 24 franchise. 

TV Line broke the news, noting the low ratings of the show as a possible reason behind the decision.

Despite a massive launch during the Super Bowl, interest in the series dipped significantly in the weeks that followed. In terms of live viewings in the USA, over ten million viewers switched off between the premiere and the finale.

Does the demise of Legacy provide proof that 24 can't live on without Kiefer Sutherland’s Jack Bauer? Well, even if it does, Fox certainly isn't taking it that way.

TV Line notes that, "given the keystone franchise’s importance to Fox, discussions »

24: Legacy Gets Canned At Fox, But Franchise Not Dead Just Yet

8 June 2017 10:33 AM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Well, you can’t say they didn’t give it the ol’ college try. For a while, they’ve been trying to revive the 24 franchise. A few years ago we saw Jack Bauer bow out in 24: Live Another Day, and this previous season, we saw 24: Legacy hit Fox with an all-new cast.

The new series started off strong enough, with a reported 17.58 million viewers in its premiere, but its ratings quickly tumbled, and by the final episode, it only had 3.41 million views. This is a definite fall, and while it may not be completely reflective of what audiences thought of the series, it didn’t really bode well for things to come.

Now, TVLine has confirmed that 24: Legacy will not be returning to Fox next season. However, if you were worried about 24 coming to an end, then fret not. Discussions are reportedly underway with producers Howard Gordon »

Fox Executives Open to More ‘24,’ ‘Prison Break’

15 May 2017 6:22 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Fans of the most recent incarnations of Fox’s venerable “24” and “Prison Break” won’t see the shows when the network starts up its new fall season – but that doesn’t mean executives won’t consider their return at some point in the future.

The network is set to start talking about the prospect of another run of “24” in the near future, said Gary Newman, chairman-ceo of Fox Television Group, during a conference call Monday to talk about Fox Broadcasting’s new fall schedule. Star Corey Hawkins’ involvement with the latest Broadway incarnation of “Six Degrees of Separation” made considering a new cycle of the series impossible for the fall, he said. Executives were also interested in talking to Howard Gordon, executive producer of the series, to get a sense of potential next creative steps, said Dana Walden, chairman-ceo of Fox Television Group.

Prison Break” was seen as an “event series,” said »

‘Homeland’ Season 6 Finale Scores Big Ratings Bump Over Premiere

10 April 2017 1:35 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The “Homeland” Season 6 finale delivered a big ratings boost to Showtime series on Sunday, improving dramatically over the season premiere back in January.

The finale drew 1.9 million total viewers airing at 9 p.m, according to Nielsen data. The premiere drew 1.1 million, meaning the finale improved on the premiere by approximately 72% in total viewers. In addition, the finale was up 37% in total viewers compared to the episode that aired last week (1.3 million). This season is averaging 5.5 million viewers per week across multiple platforms.

Season 6 picked up several months after Carrie Mathison (Claire Danes) thwarted a terrorist attack in Berlin, with Carrie living in Brooklyn and working at a foundation that provides aid to Muslims living in the U.S. The season tackled the after-effects of the U.S. presidential election, which in the “Homeland” universe ended with a woman elected to the office for the first time in the country’s history.

24: Legacy Producers on Eric Carter v Jack Bauer, Post Super Bowl Slot & More!

4 February 2017 6:00 AM, PST | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

We had the opportunity to sit with the executive producers of 24: Legacy at New York Comic Con this past fall.

We have the full chat with Evan Katz, Howard Gordon and Manny Coto in the video below.

During the discussion they express their feelings on Jimmy Smit's presence being one of his qualifications as President, and share thoughts on the past presidents from other installments of 24.

Co-star Miranda Otto, too, has the weight, intelligence and complexity to bring a natural feel to her role.

But what about Corey Hawkins? They talk about whether he's prepared for 24 mania and the rabid fandom that comes from starring on a TV show versus what he's experienced from his starring turn in Straight Outta Compton.

They also discuss Hawkins' classical training and his grace as a performer, which lends itself to his undeniable charisma.

24: Legacy spoiler-free episode 1 review

25 January 2017 2:17 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Chris Longo Feb 16, 2017

CTU has a new hero. Here are some spoiler-free thoughts on Fox's new reboot, 24: Legacy, which arrived in the UK last night...

As cynical and sick of franchises, reboots, revivals, and remakes as we are or pretend to be in the comments section (everyone seemed pretty stoked about Rogue One), audiences are smart enough to know that Hollywood won’t budge on this trend anytime soon. They’ll shake every last dollar they can get out of the Revival Era as long as we keep our sticky fingers on our smartphones, tablets, and remotes.
