Every year or so there's a great thriller that shocks viewers and make them beg for more. In 2001, we got the show that started it all. The one that made people check their heart beats and health after each episode: The show is 24. This year all we got is Prison Break. Next year, there are 3 shows that are in the same vein as 24; Hostage, Kidnapped, and Thirteen.
Heist: Heist is a show that will be about people, who are held hostage in a jewelry store for many surprising reasons. This show is often compared to 24.
Kidnapped: The show will be a "24"-style thriller, tracking the case from multiple points of view, with Sisto essentially playing the Jack Bauer role. Future seasons of the show would follow his character on different cases. "Kidnapped," which is being written by Jason Smilovic ("Karen Sisco"), will follow the search for the abducted teenager over the course of its season, a la "24" or "Prison Break." (from zap2it.com)
(another one)Following the success of Fox's 24 and Prison Break, one of the most notable trends taking place in scripted entertainment is the exploration of a single event over the course of an entire season. (tv.com)
Thirteen: Although it'll only get 13 episodes per season, the show is quite similar to FOX's 24. Isn't it obvious? 24=24 episodes, Thirteen=13 episodes & both are TV thrillers.
