Fox has picked up the new Tim Kring (Heroes) pilot Touch, which stars Kiefer Sutherland as a father whose mute son possesses a unique gift. The show has been picked up for a 13-episode midseason order.
Sutherland says, “Every once in a while, you encounter a piece of material that you just cannot say no to. 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.”
