Time will stop again on the set of 24.  As reported earlier this week, production on the FOX series will cease for two weeks, beginning September 15, to re-evaluate the program’s creative direction after executive producer Howard Gordon expressed dissatisfaction with scripts. But with the long wait ahead before the new season kicks off in January 2009, the network is doing everything it can to ease the wait.

On September 14, the network is inviting viewers to buckle up starting at 8pm for a “FOX Sunday Night Thrill Ride” as it airs the encore presentation of the series premiere of Fringe, the heart-pounding first four minutes of Fringe‘s second episode, an exclusive first-look preview of the science fiction remake of The Day the Earth Stood Still and an advance look at the highly anticipated film 24: Redemption.
