Beep, beep, beep, beep….
During a Super Bowl promo for the new miniseries “24: Live Another Day,” viewers were treated to that iconic “24” ticking clock sound for the first time since the Emmy-winning action series ended in 2010.
The upcoming 12-episode miniseries, filmed in London, will reunite fans with Kiefer Sutherland‘s Jack Bauer, Mary Lynn Rajskub‘s Chloe O’Brian, Kim Raver‘s Audrey Raines and William Devane‘s James Heller beginning May 5 on Fox.
Will this new edition live up to the original series in terms of being embraced by the Emmys?
The movie/miniseries races are far less crowded than the drama races, so “24: Live Another Day” has a great shot at being nominated across the board, from the acting categories down to the smaller craft awards. There is precedent for this: in 2008, there was a two-hour telefilm — “24: Redemption” — that reaped five nominations including Sutherland as Best Movie/Mini Actor.
Over its eight seasons, the “24” series was nominated for 68 Emmy nominations and racked up 20 wins, including Best Drama Series (2006) and acting victories for leading player Sutherland (2006) and supporting actress Cherry Jones (2009).
Below, relive those moments from the 2006 Emmy ceremony when “24” won Best Drama over “Grey’s Anatomy,” “House,” “The Sopranos” and “The West Wing,” and Sutherland claimed Best Actor against Peter Krause (“Six Feet Under”), Denis Leary (“Rescue Me“), Christopher Meloni (“Law & Order: Special Victims Unit”) and Martin Sheen (“The West Wing”). He actually won two Emmys that night as he was also credited as a producer of the show.
