The Fox drama “Touch” returns for its second season with a two-hour premiere at 7 p.m. Friday, Feb. 8
Details on the series, provided by Fox, are as follows:
We are all interconnected. Our lives are invisibly tied to those whose destinies touch ours.
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.
In Season Two, the action shifts dramatically from New York to Los Angeles, where Martin and Jake find themselves at the center of a global conspiracy involving a mother in search of her missing teenage daughter; a mathematical genius; and a religious zealot assassinating others with abilities like Jake’s. Joining the cast this season are Maria Bello (“ER”), Lukas Haas (“24”), Said Taghmaoui (“G.I. Joe: The Rise of The Cobra”) and newcomer Saxon Sharbino.
