Nope. Full season ordered.

Glad that Tom dumped the goofy glasses and at least according to the show is using contacts.

Wonder if the VP candidate being a prime suspect is just a Red Herring.

Cool. It's been good so far, although I'm not a big fan of blackmailing people in law enforcement. Too 24ish.

I think Aaron Shore (the White House Deputy Chief of Staff) is crooked... that's why Hannah got the text warning her not to talk.

Anyone else notice when the president turned up the volume on the TV he stopped it at 24...

I'm still waiting for him to say, "get Jack Bauer."

A showrunner change on the heels of a full season order screams "ousted for creative differences", the same as the first showrunner. I can't wait to see the "improvements."

Not to mention, the show sounds like a logistical nightmare.

Films in Toronto

Writers room is in Los Angeles

New showrunner will be based in Los Angeles

Creator/Writer of the show is based in New York

Guessing they use Skype or Facetime a lot to communicate.

Kiefer also has final approval on all scripts
