Season 1

24 is an American action television series created by Joel Surnow and Robert Cochran and presented in real time, with each season depicting a 24-hour period in the life of Jack Bauer, who works with the United States government as it fights fictitious terrorist threats to the United States.

Broadcast by Fox in the United States and syndicated worldwide, the show aired from 6 November, 2001 to 24 May, 2010. There are 124 episodes (and a TV movie) in eight seasons.

24 originally premiered in South Africa on M-Net on Thursday 31 January 2002, at 19h00. It was moved to DStv's M-Net Action channel for the 7th season, as well as the preceding television movie 24: Redemption. The first season also aired on free-to-air channel e.tv.

The series premiered on TopTV's Fox Entertainment channel before the channel went live in South Africa (on 1 May, 2010). The first three seasons had already aired by the time the channel activated, so the series began in South Africa with Season 4, which premiered on Friday 9 July 2010, at 21h00. Seasons 1-3 were later broadcast in a late-night slot, airing daily, from 12 September, 2010.

When Fox Entertainment became FOX in 2013 the final season aired on the new channel, which was broadcast simultaneously on TopTV and DStv. See "Seasons" below for seasonal broadcast dates and times by channel.

Season 1

Season 1’s storyline starts at 12pm on the day of the California Presidential primary. The day’s events revolve around an assassination attempt on Senator David Palmer.

Palmer is a candidate for the Democratic presidential nomination.

CTU agent Jack Bauer heads up CTU, and becomes involved. However, the terrorists then attempt to control Jack by kidnapping his wife and daughter.

Jack eventually defeats this terrorist cell, lead by Ira Gaines and saves his wife and daughter; however Jack receives new information about a second group of terrorists who had employed the first cell. Andre and Alexis Drazen are the two responsible for this new cell.

As events during the second half of the show unfold, various plot twists are revealed – including one in which a mole at CTU is uncovered. The mole turns out to be Jack’s ex-lover Nina Myers. The season ends with the dramatic and unexpected death of Teri Bauer.

The show also contains events that will effect future seasons. Some of these events are:

• The death of Teri Bauer.
• The relationship developed between Jack and David Palmer.
• The relationship developed between Jack and Tony Almeida.
• The divorce of David & Sherry Palmer.
• George Mason becoming director of CTU.
• Nina Myers revealed as a mole.
• The future appearance of a man Jack Bauer busted for taking bribes.
