24: Redemption (working title 24: Exile) is a Golden Globe nominated television movie that bridges the gap between the sixth and seventh seasons of the TV series 24. The narrative in the episode takes place during a presidential inauguration and is split between the fictional African nation Sangala and the United States: in Sangala, Jack Bauer finds himself caught up in a military coup while trying to find a place where he can 'be at peace'; and in the United States, where President-elect Allison Taylor is being sworn in to office. The movie takes place in real-time, covering two hours, 3:00 to 5:00 PM, local time.
The movie premiered on November 23, 2008 in the USA with the extended DVD released two days later. The movie aired on November 24, 2008 on Sky1 in the UK and on December 5, 2008 on the Seven Network in Australia. The extended version features the removal of the 24 clock that would appear at commercial breaks, and as such the time of day varies between the two versions at some specific areas where a time of day clock is shown. The clock is still seen at the beginning and ending of the extended version.
