Milk is working with Fox as the lead VFX studio on “24: Live Another Day” – currently airing on Sky 1 in the UK and around the world – to create
a mix of CG and effects work for the heart-stopping series.

Set and shot in London, the 12 episode one-hour event series “24: Live another Day” follows the dramatic exploits of heroic agent Jack Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland). It isthe first US drama to shoot in the UK following the implementation of the high-end TV tax incentive in April 2013.
