CULVER CITY, CA — Visual effects house Zoic Studios ( helped boost anticipation for the return of the Fox series 24.

The trailer was directed by Three (One) O’s Norry Niven and celebrates the triumphant return of 24 hero, Jack Bauer, who treks through London street wreckage, fearlessly carrying Chloe to face the danger head-on. 

Zoic worked in partnership with Fox to craft the VFX for the trailer, including massive explosions and extensive building and car damage. 24: Live Another Day will debut on May 5, and will consist of a 12-episode season.

Michael Kirylo acted as 3D supervisor and Andrew Bardusk was 2D/compositing supervisor. Kirylo and Scott Rosecrans created models for the promo.
