Trailer: The new series of Sky 1's 24

24 returns to Sky 1 on January 17th with a brand new series. And it’s pretty star-studded too, with Katee Sackhoff, Freddie Prinze Jr., Mykelti Williamson, John Boyd, Jennifer Westfeldt and Chris Diamantopoulos featuring.

And, we’ve managed to get an exclusive trailer from the show!

The Emmy Award-winning drama starring Kiefer Sutherland returns with season eight unfolding in New York City amidst the shadows of the Statue of Liberty and the United Nations.

In this new day, CTU has been upgraded and is run by MBA-schooled and razor-sharp head honcho Brian Hastings (Williamson, “Forrest Gump”). Cole Ortiz (Prinze Jr.), an ex-Marine who wants to follow in Bauer’s footsteps, runs the division’s Field Operations. Expert data analyst Dana Walsh (Sackhoff, “Battlestar Galactica”) collaborates with systems analyst Arlo Glass (Boyd, “The Notorious Bettie Page”) inside CTU. Rob Weiss (Diamantopoulos, “The Starter Wife”) serves as President Allison Taylor’s (Cherry Jones) new chief of staff, and Meredith Reed (Westfeldt, “Grey’s Anatomy”) is an ambitious journalist with ties to the unfolding situation.

In addition, Bollywood icon Anil Kapoor (“Slumdog Millionaire”) makes his American TV debut as Omar Hassan, a Middle Eastern leader who comes to the U.S. on a peacemaking mission.

Here’s a trailer from Day Eight… and as ever, it’s looks preposterous and a thrill-a-minute.
