Kiefer SutherlandChloe O'Brien may have told Jack Bauer to "shut it down" in the series finale, but according to star Kiefer Sutherland, the '24' movie is back on.

He told 'Extra' that he hopes the movie may start shooting "hopefully by December or January," and that "it's something we're very excited about."

However, after making over 200 episodes of the TV series, Sutherland acknowledged the problems that have reportedly dogged the search for a suitable story and script. "It's very hard ... to try and find a story that's unique and will service the history of the show as well."

scott porter nomads friday night lightsSome of our favorite 'Friday Night Lights' graduates are starting to find their post-game footing.

Taylor Kitsch is heading to the big screen in 'John Carter of Mars', Minka Kelly is starring in a CBS comedy pilot, and Jason Street himself, Scott Porter, has landed a leading role in 'Nomads', the CW's adventure series pilot.

'Nomads' sounds like a welcome departure from the network's recent teen girl-friendly fare. The show follows a group of broke, young (and probably very sexy) backpackers working secret missions for the CIA abroad.

CBS orders pilot for law drama

cbs logoCBS swears it's trying to get away from procedurals, but I just don't believe them. The Hollywood Reporter says the network has ordered a pilot for a law drama, produced by Barry Schindel (Numb3rs) and powerhouse movie producers Ridley and Tony Scott. The untitled show is about "the lives, relationships, cases and careers of a team of public defenders." Sounds like NBC's failed Conviction, but on the other side of the table.

Schindel pitched a similar show, called Law Dogs, to NBC in 2003 but it didn't even get a pilot order. Schindel says he never gave up, that this is "a show that needed to be done."

'Tis the season to kiss television networks' butts. January is a big month in Los Angeles, when writers and producers are pitching their show ideas to all the networks. This week, networks placed their orders for a whole bunch of new dramas, including some created by well-knowns such as J.J. Abrams and Ridley and Tony Scott. Here is a list of some shows we know about so far:

  • Six Degrees, J.J. Abrams (Lost, Alias), ABC: stories of six strangers in New York intertwine.
  • Jericho, Jon Turteltaub, CBS: social, psychological, physical chaos ensue when a small town is cut off from the rest of the world after a nuclear disaster.
  • Orpheus, Ridley & Tony Scott, CBS: a man's girlfriend is involved in a cult.
  • Faceless, Joe Carnahan, FOX: prosecutor goes undercover to an underworld organization (a prosecutor?).
  • Heroes, Tim Kring, NBC: everyday people discover they have super hero powers.
  • Seeing Red, Graham Yost, NBC: a cop talks to dead people to solve cases.
  • Untitled Alicia Keys project, Alicia Keys, UPN: inspired by the life of Alicia Keys, the show is about a 24-year-old musician who grew up in Hell's Kitchen.
  • Underfunded, David Breckman & Rob Abrash, USA: a brilliant agent for the Canadian Secret Service solves cases despite the agency's severe lack of funding.
So... which of these shows do you think we'll actually see on the air next fall?
