The clock ticks again with 24: Legacy, the next evolution of 24 which chronicles an adrenaline-fueled race against the clock to stop a devastating terrorist attack on United States soil – in the same real-time format of the original series.

Six months ago in Yemen, an elite squad of U.S. Army Rangers, led by Sergeant Eric Carter, killed terrorist leader Sheik Ibrahim Bin-Khalid. In the aftermath, Bin-Khalid's followers declared a fatwah against Carter, his squad and their families, forcing them into federal witness protection.

To thwart further attacks, Carter enlists Rebecca Ingram, who quarterbacked the raid that killed Bin-Khalid. Together, Carter and Ingram uncover a sophisticated terrorist network that will force them to ask: "Who can we trust?"

TX Time: 21h00
Genre: Food

Chef Giada De Laurentiis hosts a variety of weekend guests for some delicious surf-side eats. First, it's an Italian surf 'n' turf with a seasonal menu featuring grilled plum salad, spicy melon salad and grilled skirt steak.

Then, Giada does summer sunsets right with a happy hour and appetiser spread that includes a crab and potato frittata and rose spritzes.

And when Giada plays host to her daughter's friends, the menu stars kid-friendly favourites like pasta salad, taco burgers and a homemade gelato bar.

Lethal Weapon

Channel: eExtra (Openview 105 / DStv 195 / StarSat 489)
TX Time: 17h55
Genre: Buddy Comedy, Action, Comedy-Drama

Combining action and drama with ride-or-die friendship and humour, Lethal Weapon reimagines the hit movie franchise, as it follows classic cop duo Riggs and Murtaugh, who work a crime-ridden beat in modern-day Los Angeles.

Grief-stricken after the loss of his young wife and unborn child, ex-Navy SEAL-turned-detective Martin Riggs moves to California to "start over" at the LAPD. He's paired up with Roger Murtaugh, who's just coming back to the job after a near-fatal heart attack.

Riggs' penchant for diving headfirst into the line of fire immediately clashes with Murtaugh's prudent, by-the-book technique. One has everything to live for, the other has nothing to lose.
