The producers of Fox's ''24'' are having a hard time getting this season's clock started.

For the second time this summer the production start date for the seventh season of ''24'' has been pushed back due to creative tinkering.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, shooting on the new ''24'' season was expected to begin on Aug. 27, but is being moved to Sept. 10 as writers scramble to complete scripts.

At Comic-Con last month, producers admitted that the season's initial storyline - rumored to take place largely in Africa - fell through, a decision that initially moved the production start from late July to late August.
