Firstly apologises, i’ve behind with site updates and news, it’s been kind of crazy. I’ll do my best to catch up, starting with this news, which everyone else has posted, but i’ll post here for the sake of my news archives being complete.
“… Kiefer Sutherland has inked a multifaceted deal with 20th Century Fox Television …, which is set to begin in June, calls for the actor to continue on the hit Fox drama for three more years and includes a two-year development deal for Sutherland’s soon-to-be-launched production banner.
Details on the deal were sketchy, but sources pegged the acting portion alone at more than $40 million for the three seasons, which could make Sutherland the highest-paid actor in a drama series.
While the deal with Sutherland locks him in for three additional years beyond the current fifth season of “24,” the 20th TV/Imagine TV-produced show so far has been picked up for one additional season.
Under the pact, Sutherland also will be elevated from a co-executive producer to executive producer on “24” next season alongside Joel Surnow, Robert Cochran, Howard Gordon and Evan Katz …”
