'24' Returns for More CIA Thrills

The new season of the show 24 begins Tuesday night. The show's creators say that having each hour-long episode reflect an hour in the life of CIA agent Jack Bauer allows them to make it up as they go along. Main plot elements this season include a drug cartel and biological weapons. NPR's Robert Siegel talks with Joel Surnow, a writer and co-creator of the FOX series.
