Fox Picks Up Kiefer Sutherland Starrer 'Touch'

Fox has officially announced a 13-episode order of 'Touch', starring Kiefer Sutherland and David Mazouz.

The series, from 'Heroes' creator Tim Kring, has been a lock to be picked up since Sutherland became attached to the project but Fox has now confirmed its commitment after watching a pilot.

"Touch is another ambitious series from Tim Kring that is beautifully executed and has incredibly resonant themes for our times," says Fox's President of Entertainment, Kevin Reilly. "With Kiefer back on the network as the face and force behind this creative new series, I'm confident it will resonate with viewers this spring."

"Every once in a while, you encounter a piece of material that you just cannot say no to," adds Sutherland. "That, combined with the opportunity to work again with Peter Chernin and the Fox studio and network, makes me thrilled to be a part of this project. I also look forward to working with an extraordinary writer and producer like Tim Kring."

The official description for the drama from Fox is as follows: "At the center of Touch is Martin Bohm (Sutherland), a widower and single father, haunted by an inability to connect to his mute 11-year-old son, Jake (David Mazouz). After multiple failed attempts at keeping Jake in school, Martin is visited by Clea Hopkins (Gugu Mbatha-Raw), a social worker sent to evaluate Jake's well-being."

"Everything changes when Martin discovers that Jake possesses the gift of staggering genius the ability to see things that no one else can and the patterns that connect seemingly unrelated events. Jake is indeed communicating. But it's not with words, it's with numbers. Martin meets Arthur Dewitt (Danny Glover), a professor and an expert on children who possess special gifts when it comes to numbers."

"Now, it's up to Martin to decipher the meaning and connect the numbers to the cast of characters whose lives they affect."

The network calls it "a distinct and colorful drama in which science and spirituality intersect with the hopeful premise that we are all interconnected, tied in invisible ways to those whose lives we are destined to alter and impact."

'Touch' is expected to join the schedule in the spring of 2012.
