‘24’ the movie

Details of Jack Bauer‘s next big “24” adventure are out.

A new TV movie, “24: Exile,” set to bridge the gap between seasons six and seven, will premiere on Fox in November with super-anti-terrorist agent Jack Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland) in Africa, the New York Post reports.

The action unfolds four years after the end of season six, when viewers saw Bauer standing on the precipice of a mountain after ruining his personal life to save the world yet again.

In the film, Bauer has been seeking solace as a missionary in Africa, but he finds himself in the midst of a bloody coup in the small (fictional) nation of Sangala, where a dictator is drafting children as soldiers.

According to the newspaper, Bauer embarks on a personal crusade to save the children.

Fox will release the film on DVD after it has aired. Season seven premieres in January.

The new film is expected to make it a bit easier for viewers to digest “24” when it finally returns after a yearlong absence. The show was yanked this past winter when the strike by the Writers Guild of America made production impossible.

Locals in ‘Model’ hunt

Fans of the CW hit “America’s Next Top Model” — which kicked off its 11th edition on Wednesday — may have noticed two area hopefuls among the 14 women vying for the crown: Isis, 22, described as a program assistant for a nonprofit organization in Prince George’s County, and Lauren Brie, a 20-year-old student from Charlottesville.

The program airs Wednesday evenings at 8.
