Add Bob Cochran to the list of high-profile 24 co-creators returning to the Fox franchise’s upcoming event-series reboot. The Emmy-winning executive producer/showrunner Cochran will serve as executive producer of 24: Live Another Day. Cochran, whose credits also include co-creating the La Femme Nikita television series, most recently wrote the Starz pilot Pinkerton, based on the famous 19th century detective, Alan Pinkerton. He is repped by APA and Gendler & Kelly’s Michael Gendler. Fox in May announced Kiefer Sutherland has closed a deal for the event series at its upfront presentation in New York City. The continuation was pitched to Fox by longtime 24 showrunner Howard Gordon (now executive producer of Showtime’s Homeland). His 20th Century Fox TV-based Teakwood Lane is co-producing with original series producers Imagine TV and 20th TV. It’s one of two event series the network unveiled at its upfront confab — the other being M. Night Shyamalan’s Wayward Pines starring Matt Dillon.
