Upcoming Spy DVDs: 24 TV Movie

How about following up that jokey 24 news with some real 24 news? TVShowsOnDVD reports that this fall's 24 TV movie (a prequel to January's Season 7) will hit DVD two days after it first airs on Fox! They also offer up the first plot description I've seen for 24: Exile:
On the day of the Presidential Inauguration, Jack Bauer finds himself in the midst of a bloody uprising in the small African nation of Sangala. He must risk his life to transport a group of orphans to the American Embassy and sacrifice his own freedom to ensure that they are evacuated out of the country and make it safely to America.
The DVD will be an extended "creator's cut" and boasts several special features including a commentary, a making-of featurette, a recap of Season 6 and the "first act" of Season 7, as well as a trailer for it. Read more at TVShowsOnDVD.

Meanwhile, Newsarama has a good write-up of Fox's 24 panel at Comic-Con (which I wasn't able to attend), but it still doesn't answer the most burning question about this "movie": will it be in real time, like the show? I was hoping no, because it would be cool to see Bauer in action without the gimmick, but I'm guessing yes...
