Here's the first trailer for the new sci-fi drama TOUCH from creator Tim Kring (he of HEROES fame-turned-infamy) and the cancel-happy folks at 20th Century Fox. Will it have enough mass audience appeal to live longer than the 12 episodes they've ordered? Your guess is as good as ours. Check the promo out and see what you think...
At the center of TOUCH is MARTIN BOHM (Sutherland), a widower and single father, haunted by an inability to connect to his mute 11-year-old son, JAKE (David Mazouz). After multiple failed attempts at keeping Jake in school, Martin is visited by CLEA HOPKINS (Gugu Mbatha-Raw), a social worker sent to evaluate Jake’s well-being. Everything changes when Martin discovers that Jake possesses the gift of staggering genius – the ability to see things that no one else can and the patterns that connect seemingly unrelated events. Jake is indeed communicating. But it’s not with words, it’s with numbers. Martin meets ARTHUR DEWITT (Danny Glover), a professor and an expert on children who possess special gifts when it comes to numbers. Now, it’s up to Martin to decipher the meaning and connect the numbers to the cast of characters whose lives they affect.
TOUCH debuts Spring 2012.
