A recap of info...

Heres a info recap of Season 6 stufff... thanks to Josh from 24 Community Episode 6.0 Prequel. September 6th - It's basically Jack getting tortured in China and him saying nothing. Then you think he's gonna get to escape, but it's a trap. Source - Nina Myers at HQ Episode 6.1 6:00 a.m. - 7:00 a.m. Airdate - January 7th, 2007 Airtime: 8:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m. August 25th - John, a production assistant on the show confirmed, "We premiere on January 7, 2007 with a 2 hour premiere." Source - Fox24Rules at the Fox forums August 24th - Director Jon Cassar is establishing the show's White House story, which has always been integral to the spy thriller set in the Counter Terrorist Unit in Los Angeles. The writers, it seems, have come up with a doozy: Wayne Palmer, the deceased former president's brother who was with him when he was assassinated, has become the leader of the free world. How this goes down, nobody is telling. But here he (D.B. Woodside) is, the first time viewers see him in the Oval Office, and in typical "24" fashion, things are not good. America is already under some form of terrorist attack when the season opens, and Jack, who was last seen literally on a slow boat to China, has been behind bars there for 20 months. So the new president is ticked. Cassar coaches the actor on the gradations of anger — "Be angry at the situation, not the people" — and when Woodside, Peter MacNicol, who has joined the cast as a presidential special advisor, and Jayne Atkinson, who plays Karen Hayes, a Homeland Security official, perform the scene again, it is gripping. Source - L.A. Times July 13th - First eps is 6am to 7am. Buchanan is negotiating with 'Fayed' to get info on 'Assad'. Fayed will only trade info for custody of Jack. Jack isn’t in CTU custody. He appears to be cooperating with Bill and Curtis because he knows it’s the only way to stop the bad guys. Fayed tells Bill that in order for them to get to Assad, they have to lock Jack to a fence and then they'll be given Assad's location. When Fayed gets Jack he proceeds to torture him for what Jack had done to his brother. Fayed 'admires the Chinese handiwork', the many scars on Jack's torso, and his burned and scarred hands. Fayed beats and kicks Jack, then has him strapped to a chair and starts with a knife. Meanwhile, Morris is consoling Chloe, at work, because Buchanan gave the baddies Jack. Turns out 'Assad' is actually a good guy and 'Fayed' made it look like he was a baddie so CTU would kill him. Fayed set up Assad because he betrayed the cause. He tells this to Jack before he kills him, as all supervillians do, then steps out to take a call. Big mistake. Jack attacks the lone guard by biting his throat open.

WAYNE PALMER (DB Woodside), the strong-minded brother of the late President David Palmer, is now himself the President of the United States, while his sister, SANDRA PALMER (Regina King), is a determined and powerful advocacy lawyer. After a series of horrific terrorist attacks, Palmer and his team of advisors, KAREN HAYES (Jayne Atkinson) and THOMAS LENNOX (Peter MacNicol) as well as CTU colleagues CHLOE O'BRIAN (Mary Lynn Rajskub), CURTIS MANNING (Roger Cross) and BILL BUCHANAN (James Morrison) begin an unthinkable, nail-biting day. Source - Fox August 29th - I caught up with nominee Gregory Itzin on the red carpet and he revealed that President Logan will resurface around the midday point. "It started with, 'Oh, you'll be back around [Episode] 7 or 8,'" he says. "Now it looks like it'll be 9 or 10. The story tells itself for those guys. They know they want me back and it will organically happen." The only question now is how Logan will be woven back into Jack's nightmarish day. Luckily, Itzin's got the answer to that, too. "He has information that they need," he offers, "which is why they come after him." Kim Raver told me at the Emmys that Audrey's return was simply a question of when, not if. "We want to find the appropriate moment, so we're waiting," she says. "Kiefer and I and the producers, we're all talking about it to find the key moment." And despite her new gig on ABC's buzz-worthy drama The Nine, Raver says she'll be able to drop in for more than one episode. "People really want them to be together. It's a huge compliment."

Times August 23rd - Exec Producer Evan Katz explains his decision to install David's bro in the Oval Office. "It's a great choice. It's RFK. It's the slightly less-polished younger brother who has something to prove and is living in the — 'shadow' is too strong a word. But living with the martyred, heroic older brother is very powerful. What I think we need to remind people is that we're not just [making him the prez] because he's [David's] brother. He was [David's] chief of staff in Season 3. He's a big part of politics."

In other news, a casting call has gone out for an actor in his thirties to play a "no-nonsense soldier" stationed at a military prison. Source - TVGuide August 8th - Manny Coto said in the recent 24 mag, "There are some new elements that we haven't done before. It's safe to say that Jack's character will be in a place he's never been before - a dark place. What he goes through with the Chinese is going to change him in a dramatic way, where it leads him to the point of him questioning the whole point of living and continuing this. There are other things that will be happening that I can't give away, but it's a crisis of his soul, which is really him being keyed up for next season." Source - Official 24 Magazine August 7th - Jon Cassar believes Day 6 will top Day 5. "It's not a question at all. The answer is yes." While other seasons gradually bring the terror to light, the new season begins "in the midst of America being terrorized," Cassar says, likening the explosive opening to the early hours after 9-11. " Something horrible has already happened, so we start in a mood of national paranoia and fear and go from there," he says. Jack has been in Chinese custody for two months and has been tortured physically and mentally. "He's not the same Jack we've seen before," Cassar says. "He's beaten down, a weakened shell." A la Jack's Season 3 return from drug abuse, Season 6 will track Jack's comeback. Meanwhile, a Guantanamo-like internment camp raises issues about "how far our country will go to stop terror" says Cassar. Kiefer Sutherland says, "We'll start with Jack next season at the lowest point anybody's ever seen him," explaining that Day 6 opens two months into his Chinese incarceration. "Jack has always dealt with situations where other people's lives are in danger. Now it's all about saving his own butt, and there's a lot of 'I don't care about me. Do what you will.'" Source - TVGuide August 2nd - Marisol Nichols has joined Fox's Emmy-winning drama "24" in a recurring role. The actress is said to be playing Natalie, the boss of Chloe and the right-hand woman to Bill at CTU. The character is described as smart, attractive and very good at what she does. Source - Fox August 2nd - Exec producer Evan Katz said somewhere between "18 months and two years" will have passed when Season 6 launches in January. He said the idea of picking up immediately where last season left off was "talked about, but it's always important to us for the characters to have traveled a certain amount of distance emotionally. You don't get a chance to do a lot of that during the course [of the season]. Also, the odds that two of the worst days [would occur] right next to each other stretches credulity a little bit." Source - TVGuide August 1st - Eric Balfour has signed on to reprise his Season 1 role as independent CTU contractor Milo Pressman. Balfour will be credited as a series regular. Curtis Manning (Roger Cross) is also set to appear in Season 6. Source - Spoilerfix & TVGuide July 31st - Kiefer Sutherland has said this would be the most political season yet, without a hint at which side of the aisle will embrace the plot more enthusiastically. "This year there's a couple of statements that are very political. The writers chose to address a really interesting situation." Source - Sun-Sentinel July 27th - Kiefer Sutherland figures 24 will pick up about a year-and-a-half from when we last saw Bauer. "We just got the first scripts. [Jack's] at the end of his line. Something's going to have to really rejuvenate him from the position that he's in," said Sutherland, "otherwise he's just going to be dead."He added that it will be interesting this coming season, which starts again in January, "to come from a really deep dark place and actually try to come up instead of starting from an up position and trying to go down." Source - Toronto Sun July 26th - Kiefer Sutherland revealed that both Gregory Itzin and Jean Smart, who played the President and First lady respectively, will likely return some time during the season. "I think they are both going to be, [but] in which capacity and how much [is to be determined]," says Sutherland. Source - iFMagazine July 20th - Jon Cassar recently revealed to Ecran Large "In the past seasons, Jack always tried to prevent terrorists attacks but in season 6, one of the idea that we might picked up would be that these attacks already occurred at the very beginning of the season. What would be the situation if something like 10 nuclear bombs had already exploded in a roar all around the country? We're planning [another prequel], especially to solve out how Jack came back from China because if you had to show it in the series, it would be at least a 15 hours flight and that would be pretty boring to watch."

"We've had five years of him saving a large thing; this one's much more about him saving his own ass. He'll go from being the one who hunts people down to the one who's being hunted, so that in itself turns the show around." Source - Guardian Unlimited June 28th - [ASSAD] He is Middle Eastern (or should pass for Middle Eastern)in his mid 30 s to mid 40 s, and the mastermind of a terrorist plan.

From Dixiehank at the 24 Community Ausiello: That scary bald dude/mastermind of all things evil played by ER's Paul McCrane is returning this season, and we'll meet his wealthy Bel-Air wife and their 15-year-old kid. Also, Fox put out a press release yesterday that pretty much revealed the entire premise for Season 6. Here it is in their words: "Season Five concluded with a battered and bloodied Bauer captured by Chinese government agents and headed for points unknown. Season Six picks up 20 months later. Wayne Palmer (DB Woodside), the strong-minded brother of the late President David Palmer, is now himself the President of the United States, while his sister, Sandra Palmer (Regina King), is a determined and powerful advocacy lawyer. After a series of horrific terrorist attacks, Palmer and his team of advisors, Karen Hayes (Jayne Atkinson) and Thomas Lennox (Peter MacNicol) — as well as CTU colleagues Chloe O'Brian (Mary Lynn Rajskub), Curtis Manning (Roger Cross) and Bill Buchanan (James Morrison) — begin an unthinkable, nail-biting day."
