LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - Kiefer Sutherland, who starred for eight seasons on “24,” will star in a drama pilot from the creator of “Heroes.”
“Touch” centers on a father who discovers that his autistic, mute son can predict events before they happen. Sutherland will also serve as an executive producer of the Fox project, which comes from Tim Kring.
Because of Sutherland’s duties on Broadway where he currently stars in a revival of the Jason Miller’s “That Championship Season,” “Touch” is expected start production in late May-early June. That would make “Touch” a contender for midseason where “24” was a long-time staple.
