Fox gives series order to Kiefer Sutherland drama
Fox has ordered 13 episodes of the series, created and written by Tim Kring (“Heroes”), the network announced Thursday.
In the series, Sutherland plays, Martin Bohm, a widower who discovers that his mute 11-year-old son Jake has a special ability to see things and patterns that connect seemingly unrelated events—and it’s up to Martin to find the meaning in all of it.
"Every once in a while, you encounter a piece of material that you just cannot say no to,” Sutherland said in a statement.
The series marks Sutherland’s return to TV post-“24,” which ended its run in 2010 after eight seasons.
“Touch” will debut in the Spring.
