24: Legacy – the new entry in the counter-terrorism franchise 24 – will receive its UK premiere on FOX UK on Wednesday February 15th at 9pm, it has been announced.
24: Legacy tells the story of Eric Carter (Corey Hawkins), who , six months ago in Yemen, led an elite squad of U.S. Army Rangers which killed terrorist leader Sheik Ibrahim Bin-Khalid. In the aftermath, Bin-Khalid’s followers declared a fatwah against Carter, his squad and their families, forcing them into federal witness protection. But a recent attempt on Carter’s own life makes it clear to him that his team has been exposed. To thwart further attacks, Carter enlists Rebecca Ingram (Miranda Otto), who quarterbacked the raid that killed Bin-Khalid. She’s a brilliant and ambitious intelligence officer who has stepped down from her post as National Director of CTU to support her husband, Senator Donovan (Jimmy Smits) in his campaign for President of the United States.
Decades of sleepless nights and missed anniversaries landed her at the top. With the White House within their grasp, can she truly embrace a new role as First Lady? Or will her love of the action draw her back in?
Together, in this fast-paced thrill ride, Carter and Ingram uncover a sophisticated terrorist network that will force them to ask: “Who can we trust?” As they battle Bin-Khalid’s devotees, they are forced to confront their own identities, families and pasts. The drama series, which hails from Manny Coto and Evan Katz, is produced by 20th Century Fox Television in association with Imagine Television, Teakwood Lane, Rego Park Film and Television and Borderland Entertainment. Teddy Sears, Dan Bucatinsky, Anna Diop. Ashley Thomas, Charlie Hofheimer, Coral Peña, Sheila Vand and Veronica Cartwright also star; while original series star Carlos Bernard is also set to reprise his role as Tony Almeida.
