‘24’ is back on MTV
The tele series ‘24’ was arguably the most innovative and thrilling drama on television last year. The series was nominated for ten Emmy Awards and won for Outstanding Writing for a Drama Series and Outstanding Single - Camera Picture Editing for a Series.

‘24’ also received two Golden Globe nominations (Best Television Series - Drama and Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Drama, which Sutherland took home). 24 was nominated for five Television Critics Association Awards and received two awards for Outstanding New Program of the Year and Program of the Year. The new 2nd Season of ‘24’ will be telecast on MTV at 9.30pm on Thursdays with Sinhala sub-titles.

The series, which is executive-produced by Joel Sumow and Robert Cochran, retains its unique format in the second season. Each episode will cover one hour of real time and the entire season will take place in one day.

In the finale of season one, Jack Bauer (Sutherland), who heads up the Los Angeles branch of the Counter-Terrorist Unit (CTU), thwarted an assassination attempt on the life of Senator David Palmer (Dennis Haysbert). However, in the process, Jack’s wife Teri (Leslie Hope) was killed. In season two, Jack and his daughter Kim (Elisha Cuthbert) must deal with the trauma of that loss and its effect on their relationship. In addition, Kate Warner (new series regular Sarah Wynter, Lost Souis), a woman of wealth and beauty, comes into Jack’s life as a potential love interest. In the meantime, Jack, who has been inactive since Teri’s death, is called upon - by the President - to stop another terrorist plot with global implications.

The series also features Xander Berkeley as George Mason, Penny Johnson Jerald as Sherry Palmer, and Carlos Bernard as Tony Almeida.
