Original 24 executive producers Howard Gordon and Brian Grazer are on board for the potential new 24 franchise that focuses on something other the CTU. “Details about the premise are sketchy,” reports Deadline’s Nellie Andreeva, “but I hear that the potential new 24 series centers on a female prosecutor who uncovers a legal conspiracy and has to work against the clock to save a death row inmate facing imminent execution whom she had helped prosecute but may be innocent. I hear this is part of an anthological take on 24 that would tackle a new world with new characters each season.”
