Starring Emmy and Golden Globe winner Kiefer Sutherland, and returning for a sophomore season, TOUCH is the uplifting global hit drama from creator and writer Tim Kring (“Heroes,” “Crossing Jordan”) and executive producers Peter Chernin (NEW GIRL, BEN AND KATE) and Katherine Pope (NEW GIRL, BEN AND KATE).
Blending science, spirituality and emotion, the series follows seemingly unrelated people from across the world, all of whose lives impact each other in ways seen and unseen, known and unknown. At the center of the story is MARTIN BOHM (Sutherland), a widower and single father who struggles to communicate and connect with his emotionally challenged 12-year-old son, JAKE (David Mazouz). Determined, thoughtful and caring, Martin continues to try anything – and everything – to reach his son. But Jake still hasn’t spoken.
Season One unfolded with Martin realizing that Jake possessed an extraordinary gift – the ability to perceive the seemingly hidden patterns that connect every life on the planet. It was up to Martin to decipher these numbers and put the pieces together in order to help people all over the world whose lives touched one another – whether they knew it or not.
