'24' finale's secrets heavily guarded by Fox

HOLLYWOOD - The producers of Fox television's critically hailed drama ''24'' are going to extraordinary lengths to make sure the secrets of the show's upcoming season finale don't leak out.
Anyone involved in production of the series will have to sign a confidentiality agreement, promising that they won't ''at any time, directly or indirectly, without (the producers') prior written consent ... disseminate, permit access to, duplicate, display, publish, state or in any other manner disclose any information of any kind dealing with or in any way relating to the script or season finale.'' The studio, 20th Century Fox TV, can sue for damages if the signee breaks any portion of the contract. In addition, all copies of the finale script will be numbered and printed on red paper that's nearly impossible to copy. Once production begins April 18, the set will be closed to all nonessential personnel, with extra security expected to be added. Series executive producer Joel Surnow said the final hour of ''24'' contains ''some great, great surprises and twists that would be ruined if they leaked out. It's like the ending of 'The Sixth Sense,''' he said. ''You don't want to blow it for fans.'' Even fans with connections will have a hard time getting details about the finale. Fox Entertainment president Gail Berman said her husband's been begging for information about the last hour. ''He's dying to know,'' she said. ''But I won't tell him.'' The critically lauded thriller, which plays out in 24 hours of real time, stars Kiefer Sutherland as a government agent racing the clock to thwart a political assassination plot and his daughter's kidnapping. It's not yet a lock that ''24'' will be back next season, though ratings for the series have been solid as of late. Indeed, last week's segment beat everything else for the 9-10 p.m. hour but NBC's hit comedy ''Frasier.'' Fox execs are also big fans of the series' creative direction. ''I think the show has been spectacular,'' Berman said.
