Earth-Attempting to capitalize on the success of the critically acclaimed reboot of Carl Sagan's Cosmos: A Personal Voyage, this time hosted by astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson and updated with recent scientific advances and cutting edge computer generated imagery, FOX Broadcasting Company has greenlit production of a spinoff based on another phenomenally successful FOX series, 24.
"People love the real time action and suspense of 24," explained FOX Broadcasting Co. Chairman of Entertainment Kevin Reilly. "But many people also love the awe and wonder of space and our cosmic origins. It just makes sense to combine them."
Each episode of 24: Cosmos will take the viewer through one 24 hour day in the life of our universe, starting with the Big Bang roughly 13.8 billion years ago. But who, or what, is behind the rapid expansion of the totality of matter and energy in existence won't be revealed until at least season 5,037,000,000,000. Critics are already questioning whether future inhabitants of Earth, or Earth-2, will stay tuned to find out if time traveling counter terrorism astronaut Jack Bauer will get to the bottom of it before the Big Freeze destroys all life in the universe.
