Trailer for Heroes creator Tim Kring’s new show ‘Touch’

I was a big fan of Heroes.  I followed it through the good and the bad, and thought that the fourth season was finally getting back to the show that I loved for the first season.  Where the show ended, I wanted to see it continue, with a world that knows there are characters with powers.  I wanted to see what happened next.  The show’s creator promised that the story wasn’t over, and that in one form or another, Heroes would return.  While we wait for that, if it’s ever going to happen, Tim Kring has kept busy and has a new show that Fox picked up for the spring of 2012.

Touch

This show hit my radar over the summer when I read that he had created another show that was centered around how interconnected we are, at least in some way.

At the center of Touch is Martin Bohm (Kiefer 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.
