'Awake' Showrunner Howard Gordon on Production Shutdown, 'Homeland' Renewal

by Maureen Ryan, posted Oct 26th 2011 5:45PM
Vulture broke the news today that 'Awake,' NBC's promising mid-season drama about a cop who travels between two different realities, is halting production for four weeks while executive producers Howard Gordon and Kyle Killen figure out how to move forward with the show.

"There's a certain trial and error process with any creative endeavor," Gordon said in an interview with AOL TV on Wednesday. "It's really a math and business decision married to a creative decision. We could have kept going, but we felt we could learn from our mistakes."

Those mistakes, Gordon said, are not major; he said that the studio and network are "happy" with what they've seen so far. But 'Awake,' which stars Jason Isaacs as a cop whose son is dead in one reality and who finds himself a widower in the other, debuts at mid-season and thus has what Gordon called "the luxury of time." The temporary production halt means that Killen and Gordon can spend those weeks fine-tuning their approach well before the show debuts (probably in January, Gordon said).

Review: '24' - '9:00PM-10:00PM'

24: Season 8, Episode 6

(S08E06) "If you're talking about what I think you're talking about, we don't do that anymore." - Hastings to Jack, on using unsavory methods with the Russians

Oh, snap. The Russians may have bought Renee's cover, but that doesn't mean she's out of danger. Just the opposite, especially given the fact that she's a loose cannon and doesn't seem to care whether she lives or dies at this point. Or maybe that's not necessarily true.

Sutherland and Gordon are open to more 24 - TCA Report

Kiefer Suterhland at the 24 session of the Winter 2010 TCAsThe final panel of a very eventful FOX day was for the upcoming eighth season of 24, and there were a number of questions that were hanging in the air. How are they going to deal with Jack Bauer running around New York City? Is the show something that people still want to watch when real life is scary enough? But the big question was: Is this Bauer's last roundup?

First, the hats: FOX gave critics Yankees and Mets-ish looking baseball caps to commemorate the season.The caps were fitted, and they were HUGE; they were too big for even my 7.5-sized melon. But I took 'em anyway, because they looked cool.

The reporters pretty much got at the question of another season right away, and as far as Kiefer Sutherland and executive producer Howard Gordon is concerned, they'll keep doing the show as long as FOX wants them to.

Jack Bauer on 24Stop the presses!

Jack Bauer will be around for two more days, according to a new Fox press release. Not that this is a surprise, given that last spring Kiefer Sutherland signed a $40 million, three-year contract for his role as a terrorist hunter.

Meanwhile, it looks like 24 -- winner of 5 Emmys and 51-time nominee -- will likely move its Jack-tion out of LA, according to Hollywood Reporter.

Howard Gordon, showrunner and executive producer, told the Reporter that Jack Bauer's seventh bad day will be completely unlike his sixth. "We're recreating the series," he said.

A change is gonna come for 24

by Paul Goebel, posted May 2nd 2007 8:40PM

Is this the kind of change 24 fans want?In a recent interview, producer/writer Howard Gordon told the press that he has been dramatically affected by the criticism 24 has gotten from its fans. It would seem that the show is in for a big change and I, for one, don't like it.

I was discussing the show with some friends the other day and one of them was saying they think the show has gone too far. "I mean, how can Jack get released from torturous imprisonment and be ready to save the world without a break?" they asked. Quite frankly, I was offended.
