While doing some research for something else, I stumbled on this interview with the DP's from the show 24. In the middle of it, this significant quote came out:
Quote:
It’s significant that Spark Hill, 24’s behind-the-scenes DVD guys, were told to go to HD because we’ll probably output our season five DVDs in blu-ray later in the year. As a consequence, they have to have all their behind-the-scenes materials shot in HD, so they have been using four Sony Z1s and a Sony HC1 that the producer works with.

This was back in March/April and they do say 'probably', but it is good news that they were shooting the 'extras' in HD. Has there been any other news or announcements related to 24 and Blu-ray? It would be a great show for the format.

I would think that for a tv show, they would have to, to keep disc count down and quality still up. At least let's hope. Posted Image

Fox recently announced the date for the release of 24 on SD in December which would be the same release strategy they have used with the prior years releases of 24, just before the start of the next season. Nothing in the announcement mentioned a BR version. Doesn't mean it won't happen, though.
