After managing to survive six years of near-death experiences, Jack Bauer’s finally met his match. The evil executives at FOX television. (Okay, so evil’s a bit of stretch, but we are afterall talking about the suits that cancelled FIREFLY, DRIVE, WONDERFALLS, ANDY RICHTER… the list goes on)
According to reports, the seventh season of 24 has been delayed after executives at FOX put the kibosh on the proposed story arc, which included a number of episodes to be shot in Africa. Reports TVGuide’s Michael Ausiello:
Although a 20th Century Fox spokesperson declined to comment, 24’s expert scowler, Mary Lynn Rajskub, confirms that the clock for Day 7 has been reset. “I don’t know what’s going on over there, but they’re going crazy,” says the scene-stealer, who only learned last week that Chloe would even be returning. “We usually start [back up] at the end of July, and I don’t think we’re starting until a couple of weeks into August now. It’s kind of exciting, because I think [the postponement] means that they’re really having to dig in there and come up with new stuff.”
With that in mind, we at theTVaddict.com thought it only fair to lend Jack Bauer and the creative team of 24 a hand in their hour of need (Lord knows Bauer’s saved our skin enough times). After six years of saving the world from evil-doers, endless CTU moles and creepy government agents, is there anything interesting left for Jack Bauer to do? Seriously, we have no idea, but we’re confident the readers of theTVaddict.com do. Post away with your ideas for season seven story arcs. And remember, there’s no such thing as a bad idea — unless they include Kim Bauer and a cougar.
