24 Stopping Production for 18 Days

24 Stopping Production for 18 Days

September 7, 2008

Fox's "24" is stopping production for 18 days to allow writers to work on upcoming scripts, says The Hollywood Reporter.

Filming on the real-time drama will be shut down Sept. 15, after the completion of episode 18. It will resume Oct. 9.

The idea for the unscheduled hiatus came from "24" executive producer/showrunner Howard Gordon who had been concerned about the quality of several scripts for upcoming episodes of the 20th Century Fox TV-produced series.

The work stoppage won't affect the launch of "24'"s seventh season slated for January.

Since April, "24" has been in continuous production on the new season and the two-hour prequel, scheduled to air Nov. 24, which has been completed.
