Last month, Fox made it official and picked up "Touch" for a midseason run, marking Kiefer Sutherland's first TV project since the end of "24."
Created by Tim Kring ("Heroes"), "Touch" focuses on Sutherland's Martin Bohm, a father and a widower who is completely unlike his iconic role, Jack Bauer. Instead of being an action hero, Martin is just trying to deal with his young and autistic son, Jake ( David Mazouz); who has remained mute for his entire life.
However, Martin soon discovers that his son is communicating with him using a series of numbers that may be used to predict the future. "Lethal Weapon" veteran Danny Glover co-stars as Boris Podolsky, a discredited expert on autism whose theories help guide Martin, with Gugu Mbatha-Raw as a social worker named Clea Hopkins, who has to determine if Martin should retain custody of his son.
Although the premiere is several months away, Fox has released the first full length trailer for "Touch" which sets up the premise for the series and introduces former "Lost" actor, Titus Welliver into the mix as someone who comes into conflict with Martin in a mysterious way.
Currently, Fox has not set a debut date for "Touch." However, it is widely rumored to be coming in March on Monday nights at 9PM, the previous time slot of both "24" and "Heroes."
