Another '24' hours


For studios that depend on TV-DVD for up to one-third of their total DVD revenue, the writers strike was one big headache.

 But again, ingenuity comes into play.

Unable to release a new season set of "24," 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment is prepping a "special edition" of the popular drama's inaugural season with collectible packaging and more than three hours of features.

Extras in the package, which hits stores May 20, include an all-new making-of documentary, extended episodes, deleted scenes and an alternate ending to the season finale.
