24 executive producers Howard Gordon and Brian Grazer will produce along with Jeremy Doner (The Killing), who will write the script with Gordon. The new 24 show will focus on a female lead within the criminal justice world in real time as she works to uncover a conspiracy against a potentially innocent death row inmate with a time-sensitive execution date. EW can confirm that a new incarnation of the series is in the works from Fox, as Deadline first reported. But with a lady standing front and center. The 24 franchise may live another day. This will be the fourth iteration of 24, following the original, 24: Live Another Day, which also featured Jack Bauer, and 24: Legacy, which focused on a new set of characters and was canceled last June after one season.
