’24’ to shut down production for rewrites


Apparently Jack Bauer needs a little breather: After the completion of episode 18 on Sept. 15, production on Fox's hit drama 24 will shut down until Oct. 9 while the writers reshape the upcoming season's creative direction -- specifically the transition leading to the end game. "We had a couple of scripts that we weren't happy with," 24 exec producer Howard Gordon tells EW.com. "We just couldn't get this direction to work, and we found another one that we liked better, so we wound up retooling it."

Production shutdowns are usually cause for concern -- and 24 is coming off its least critically beloved season -- but Howard assures fans that everything will be on track, and the season will not be interrupted.
