Two-Hour Television Event Premieres November 23 on FOX; Director’s Cut DVD in Stores November 25

October 17, 2008 – Last spring, FOX announced that after a nearly
two-year hiatus, 24 would return to the airwaves with 24: REDEMPTION,
an unprecedented two-hour television event shot on location in South
Africa and Los Angeles. Now as the producers ready this epic tale for
broadcast, they are unveiling a never-before-seen collection of
stunning photographs shot by five members of the show’s creative team
during the overseas filming. “24: REDEMPTION – Captured in Africa” is a
rare inside look at the making of the show composed of candid moments
between cast and crew, including Emmy Award-winner Kiefer Sutherland;
dramatic stills from the spectacular action sequences; and vivid
photographic captures of the scenic South African locations. The Paley
Center for Media in Los Angeles will host the one-of-a-kind photo
exhibit of fine art museum quality archival prints from Nov. 10, 2008
through Jan. 11, 2009, when it may move on to additional venues to be
announced later.

Curated by Entertainment Weekly deputy photo director Michael Kochman
and custom printed at DigitalFusion’s fine art printing facility, the
exhibit features works by executive producer/director Jon Cassar,
director of photography Rodney Charters, producer Michael Klick, unit
photographer Kelsey McNeal and star/executive producer Kiefer

“I was so impressed with the quality of the photography, and it was
exciting to see a production photographed from five different
perspectives,” said Kochman. “Each photographer captured something very
special and poetic – sometimes intimate, sometimes epic, sometimes
documentary-like and raw. It all adds up to a fascinating photographic

“Shooting 24: REDEMPTION in South Africa was the highlight of my six
years on the show,” said 24 executive producer and Emmy Award-winning
director Jon Cassar. “It was nothing short of exhilarating. Africa also
became a wonderful canvas for the still photography enthusiasts among
our crew. Every day put us in places and situations that were new and
exciting to us, and our cameras clicked constantly. This exhibit
chronicles the seven weeks that were spent in Cape Town and the
surrounding regions from moments captured during a hectic shooting
schedule to the faces and places that represent not only the making of
24 but the Africa of today.”

“We are so excited to be the first to host this extraordinary photo
exhibit from one of today’s most popular television shows, 24, which
offers another unique way to connect the creative community with media
enthusiasts here at the Paley Center,” said Barbara Dixon, vice
president and director of The Paley Center for Media in Los Angeles.
“This exhibit is going to have enormous appeal to everyone from the
most serious photography aficionado to the most passionate 24 fan. And
what better place to showcase exclusive behind-the-scenes content from
such a genre-defining television show than in our gallery at the Paley

24: REDEMPTION bridges the gap between Seasons Six and Seven, and is
the first new material from 24 producers in nearly two years. The
prequel catches up with JACK BAUER (Kiefer Sutherland) on the African
continent where he has sought solace in missionary work. He soon finds
himself in the midst of a bloody uprising in the fictitious African
nation of Sangala where a ruthless dictator is drafting innocent
children to serve as soldiers in his army. As the vicious COLONEL
DUBAKU (Hakeem Kae-Kazim, “Hotel Rwanda”) descends on an orphanage in
search of recruits, Jack enters into a one-man crusade at the behest of
his friend CARL BENTON (Robert Carlyle, “The Full Monty”) to rescue the
children and get them to safety. Filmed in South Africa and Los
Angeles, 24: REDEMPTION stars Emmy Award-winner Sutherland along with
Cherry Jones (“Signs,” “The Perfect Storm”), Gil Bellows (“Ally
McBeal”), Tony Todd (“Final Destination”) and Academy Award-winner Jon
Voight (“National Treasure: Book of Secrets”). The prequel was written
by showrunner/executive producer Howard Gordon and was directed by
executive producer Jon Cassar.
