Is love a box of chocolates or is it being able to see the uniqueness in the strangest places? Fox is introducing a new show called “Touch” with Keifer Sutherland, star of “24”. Touch is golden for the spring line-up for Fox with 11.9 million viewers to its January preview. Sutherland, playing Martin Bohm, finds his calling with suspense and saving the day, as his nonverbal son (he’s autistic) is able to see connections that no one else can see.
The cast of Touch is solid with Danny Glover, playing a professor with a special understanding of numbers, Gugu Mbatha-Raw (Undercovers starred with Boris Kodjoe) playing a social worker caring for Keifer Sutherland’s son, and Karen David. Sutherland’s character Martin Bohm will work with Glover and Mbatha-Raw to figure out that his son can predict the future through his autistic understanding of numbers. The show has already been touched by the talented writer and creator Tim Kring. In a FOX All Access Interview, Sutherland reveals his experience in making the show, “The material is just so refreshingly different for me. I’ve hd a blast doing it and I can’t wait for people to see it.” Tune into Fox for TOUCH on March 19, 2012!
