Fox Orders 13 Episodes of new Kiefer Sutherland Show

Fox announced today that the new Kiefer Sutherland show, Touch, will debut in Spring 2012 with 13 initial episodes.

Kiefer will play a character very different from his Jack Bauer on 24.

In Touch, Sutherland is Martin Bohm, a widowed single father who is unable to connect with his mute 11-year-old son, Jake.  When a social worker comes to help, Martin discovers that Jake is a staggering genius who can see things no else can, and he can determine the patterns that connect seemingly unrelated events.

"Every once in a while, you encounter a piece of material that you just cannot say no to,” said Sutherland, an Emmy and Golden Globe winner, in a news release.
Jake ends up using numbers to communicate with Martin after the father meets Arthur Dewitt (Danny Glover), a professor and expert on children who's also a numbers genius.   The show will focus on how Martin and Jake exchange information and how Martin begins to decipher meanings and connect the numbers to the cast of characters the two encounter.
