CENTURY CITY, Calif. - Relive the entire first nail-biting season of one of the most electrifying and innovative television programs in recent history when "24" Season One returns with an all-new Special Edition DVD May 20th from Fox Home Entertainment. Winner of 17 Emmy Awards and two Golden Globes during the show's six season run to date, the brand-new seven-disc "24" Season One Special Edition DVD set includes all 24 one-hour episodes and is packed with over three hours of never-before-seen special features including a Season Seven trailer, over 25 deleted and extended scenes, two all-new behind-the-scenes featurettes and more. Additionally the set will be available in collectible metal tin packaging that features special introductory letters from both series co-creators on their inspiration and challenges working on this groundbreaking show. The "24" Season One Special Edition DVD will be available for the suggested retail price of $59.98 U.S. / $89.98 Canada.

Premiering on television in November 2001, "24" set a new standard for prime time intensity, making use of its unique real-time element following characters throughout an entire day, and introduced audiences to Counter Terrorism Unit agent Jack Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland), a man who will stop at nothing protect his colleagues, his family and his country.

Season One of this precedent-setting television series began as Agent Bauer is informed of a threat against U.S. Senator and Presidential candidate David Palmer (Dennis Haysbert; "The Unit") on the day of the California Primary. As Bauer attempts to unravel the mystery and ensure the safety of Senator Palmer, new conspiracies begin to emerge that threaten CTU, the country and his family. With incredible supporting performances from Elisha Cuthbert (The Girl Next Door, Captivity), Carlos Bernard ("10.5: Apocalypse"), Leslie Hope (Dragonfly), Sarah Clarke (Happy Endings), Eric Balfour (The Texas Chainsaw Massacre), and Mia Kirshner ("The L Word") as well as cameos from Lou Diamond Phillips ("Numb3rs," Young Guns) and Dennis Hopper (Speed, Hoosiers), this will truly be a day that none of them will ever forget!

Fox Home Entertainment will support the "24" Season One Special Edition DVD release with a comprehensive marketing program aimed at re-promoting the entire franchise with on-air and online spots. Additionally, Fox Home Entertainment will work with national promotional partner Langers Juice, offering a sweepstakes for set visits and $5 mail-in rebates on one million labels distributed nationally in grocers across the country.


Synopsis:
The clock is ticking...Midnight. Jack Bauer, head of the CIA's Los Angeles Counter Terrorist Unit, is suddenly thrust into a chaotic and exhausting 24-hour marathon of death, deception and terror as he struggles to prevent the assassination of a presidential candidate, find the traitor within his own organization, and save his kidnapped wife and daughter.
