Item description for 24: Behind the Scenes by Jon Cassar & Kiefer Sutherland...
Now in its fifth season, "24" is the highly acclaimed, groundbreaking, dramatic thriller which defines "appointment television" and continues to attract millions of viewers a week on Fox. Over the past four seasons, the show has consistently increased its high ratings and audience size with a fine cast of recurring actors, a growing slate of guest stars and the show's star Kiefer Sutherland who portrays the unforgettable "Jack Bauer." Jon Cassar, Director/Co-Executive Producer of Fox's "24", turns his filmmaker's eye behind the scenes of the first five seasons of this hit series. He captures unscripted moments with the "24" cast and crew, including the show's star Kiefer Sutherland, as well as many other well-known celebrity guests who have graced the screen of one of the most highly acclaimed and often controversial shows on television. Jon Cassar's photography is accompanied by photographs from other members of the "24" family including Rodney Charters, Jay Herron, Michael Klick, Bruce Margolis, David St. Onge and Isabella Vosmikova. Here you will be able to see moments behind the scenes on the Counter Terrorist Unit (CTU) set and remote location shooting as well as the planned explosions of bombs and spontaneous laughter accompanied by candid, firsthand, never-before-told stories of relationships, lifelong friendships, mishaps and mayhem developed over five seasons and more than one hundred episodes that make the magic that is "24." The show, originally intended as a one-time miniseries, is now in its fifth blockbuster season, with a sixth already confirmed. "24" continues to receive critical and popular acclaim. Among the many awards garnered are: a Golden Globe for Best Actor (2002) and two SAG Awards (2004, 2006) for Kiefer Sutherland; an Emmy for Best Writing for series creators Joel Surnow and Robert Cochran (2002); and a Golden Globe for Best Drama Series (2004).

24: Behind the Scenes hardback Aug 29, 2008
A great book. Shows stunning photos of the TV show "24" being filmed for seasons 1-3. I highly recommend it for any true "24" fan.
Excellent Apr 28, 2008
Excellent content for 24 fans, from Season 1 to Season 5, with plenty of professional pictures of very high artistic quality, to get insights into the show cast, crew and into some of the most challenging scenes. You have a look at off screen actors relaxing and having fun while waiting for the next shot or discussing about it or trying to focus on their lines. Finally you feel the strength of that "24 family" Kiefer Sutherland writes about in his nice foreword of the book. Also excellent quality of the editorial format.

A "Must Have" for a 24 fan Apr 4, 2007
Loved the book - came with a CD which I haven't seen yet. Unfortunatly I read it all in one day - but it is great to get a glimpse of how they put together this amazing show and a sneak peak at all the interesting people that make it work so well.
