Because, apparently, “Redemption” just sounds redemption-er than “Exile”, FOX has officially changed the subtitle of the upcoming 24 TV movie premiering later this year from “24: Exile” to “24: Redemption”. What won’t change, though, is the TV movie’s plot, which still finds Jack Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland) in Africa working as a missionary and trying to escape his wanted status in the United States, but finds himself in the middle of an African warlord’s warpath instead. Damn, it sucks to be Jack Bauer, huh?
“24: Redemption” hits DVD shelves on November 25th from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment, the Tuesday immediately following the network television premiere over the weekend. Which means, as soon as you see this thing on TV, two days later you’ll be able to get it at your local Best Buy, or Fry’s, or wherever it is that you buy your DVDs.
“24: Redemption” will bridge the gap between Seasons 6 and the year-long delayed 7, and is the first new material from 24 producers in over a year-and-a-half. It will also introduce the show’s first female President, played by Cherry Jones.
The two-hour movie premieres Sunday, November 23rd on FOX.
