Jack Bauer Is Back! Kiefer Returning To FOX With New Series!

| Filed under: TV NewsKiefer Sutherland


All right! Could lightening strike twice for FOX?!

The network has reportedly picked up the new Tim Kring pilot Touch, which stars 24's very own Jack Bauer AKA Kiefer Sutherland as a father who discovers that his mute son possesses a unique and incredible special gift, for a 13-episode midseason order!

According to the official press release:

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.

And Kiefer reveals:

“Every once in a while, you encounter a piece of material that you just cannot say no to. That, combined with the opportunity to work again with Peter Chernin and the Fox studio and network, makes me thrilled to be a part of this project. I also look forward to working with an extraordinary writer and producer like Tim Kring.”

Wow! That certainly sounds like a fascinating idea for a series!

We just hope Kring can keep it going strong! Everyone saw how quickly Heroes went downhill!

What do U think?? Will U check out Touch??

    So did the whole plan to make a "24" movie just get shelved or did it die in development hell or did everyone just give up?? It's getting late to even bother at this point, figuring the show's fan base has moved on.
