Posted on

According to The Hollywood Reporter, 24 showrunner Howard Gordon is at work on an adaptation of the Israeli TV drama Prisoners of War. The original series focused on three former POWs readjusting to life at home. In the new version, tentatively titled Patriots, the soldiers are Iraq War vets who are presumed dead, only to be found hiding in a cave ten years later. Gordon is co-writing with 24 exec producer Alex Gansa and the creator of the Israeli show, Gideon Raff.
