Trivia Kiefer Sutherland originally wasn't interested in starring in another television series, after his eight season run on 24 (2001) and the limited series 24: Live Another Day (2014), but changed his mind after reading the script for the pilot and was blown away at how good it was. See more »
Goofs It's occasionally said that Tom Kirkman is the first independent president of the United States. George Washington, the first president, was also an independent, and John Tyler, the tenth president, was expelled from his party and effectively served as an independent for most of his term.
