24: Behind the Scenes
Insight Editions, 2006 - Performing Arts - 165 pages
Now in its fifth season, “24” is the highly acclaimed, groundbreaking, dramatic thriller which defines “appointment television” and continues to attract millions of viewers a week on Fox. Over the past four seasons, the show has consistently increased its high ratings and audience size with a fine cast of recurring actors, a growing slate of guest stars and the show’s star Kiefer Sutherland who portrays the unforgettable “Jack Bauer.”
Jon Cassar, Director/Co-Executive Producer of Fox’s “24”, turns his filmmaker’s eye behind the scenes of the first five seasons of this hit series. He captures unscripted moments with the “24” cast and crew, including the show’s star Kiefer Sutherland, as well as many other well-known celebrity guests who have graced the screen of one of the most highly acclaimed and often controversial shows on television. Jon Cassar’s photography is accompanied by photographs from other members of the “24” family including Rodney Charters, Jay Herron, Michael Klick, Bruce Margolis, David St. Onge and Isabella Vosmikova.
Here you will be able to see moments behind the scenes on the Counter Terrorist Unit (CTU) set and remote location shooting as well as the planned explosions of bombs and spontaneous laughter accompanied by candid, firsthand, never-before-told stories of relationships, lifelong friendships, mishaps and mayhem developed over five seasons and more than one hundred episodes that make the magic that is “24.”
The show, originally intended as a one-time miniseries, is now in its fifth blockbuster season, with a sixth already confirmed. “24” continues to receive critical and popular acclaim. Among the many awards garnered are: a Golden Globe for Best Actor (2002) and two SAG Awards (2004, 2006) for Kiefer Sutherland; an Emmy for Best Writing for series creators Joel Surnow and Robert Cochran (2002); and a Golden Globe for Best Drama Series (2004).
