Kiefer Sutherland is reportedly in talks about starring in a new series of 24.

The Fox network is apparently looking to bring back the award-winning real-time drama as a limited series.

According to Deadline, Kiefer is in negotiations about reprising the role of counter terrorism agent Jack Bauer.

It seems the new series would not be a follow-up to the eight season show, which ended in 2010, but would "start from scratch with a new story arc".

Former 24 producer David Fury has also seemed to confirm he is on board.

He tweeted about Deadline's report: "Yep, I'm pulling double duty along w/ TYRANT. Whoo & Hoo!"

News of the possible 24 revival comes after years of reports that the series would be back, but as a film.

Meanwhile, Kiefer's drama Touch has apparently been cancelled. The show, which aired on Sky1 in the UK, ran for two series.

It's sometimes difficult for a retiring person like you to showcase your talent. You are tired of being eclipsed by pushy rivals. By showing your work to the right people, you can finally gain the fame and acclaim you deserve. Fortunately, an influential friend, neighbour or colleague can set up an interview or introduction. An important executive or critic will be impressed by your efforts. If you're offered an unpaid position as an intern or apprentice, take it. This will lead to professional opportunities you couldn't find through other channels.More
