Fox is back in “Touch” with Kiefer Sutherland!
The network has ordered 13 episodes of “Touch,” a new drama series created and written by Tim Kring (“Heroes”) and will star Sutherland. The series is slated for midseason.
News of Sutherland’s return to the Fox network first surfaced in February.
Fox made the announcement Thursday, which included this statement from Fox Entertainment President Kevin Reilly:
“‘Touch’ is another ambitious series from Tim Kring that is beautifully executed and has incredibly resonant themes for our times. 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.”
Added Sutherland, “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.”
