Jack Bauer in Africa!

Fox announced this morning that the two-hour 24 prequel movie would premiere Nov. 23. "Shot on location in South Africa, Jack Bauer battles an international crisis, while here at home the nation prepares for a new president on inauguration day." Oh, that 24—always so topical! The series proper will return in January, paired with Dollhouse.
