TWENTY FOUR

FOX Monday, at 900 ET

 PTC Summary:

Production Companies: Imagine Television
Producers: Jon Cassar, Evan Katz, Michael Loceff
Creators: Robert Cochran, Joel Surnow

A fast-paced, high-intensity drama that takes the viewer through a day in the life of its main character, Jack Bauer, each season of 24 documents a 24- hour period with each episode covering one hour of that day. Now in its 8th season, Jack Bauer once again finds himself working with the Counter Terrorist Unit as they attempt to secure nuclear materials being sold inside the United States by the Russian crime syndicate to foreign hostiles.

As in previous seasons, the major concern for this series is its violent content. As can be expected with a show about terrorism, gunfire, explosions, and murder are common. The most graphic instances of violence usually revolve around scenes of torture, where Jack either suffers or administers horrific pain. Language is also a concern, with words like “damn,” “hell,” and “son of a bitch” being used frequently. Sex is rarely a problem, though some couples have been shown in bed together after sex.

24 is not recommended for viewers under age 18.
