The first episode will air at 8pm on Tuesday 13th March.
Created by Tim Kring (Heroes), Touch follows Martin Bohm (Sutherland), a widower and single father, haunted by an inability to connect to his mute 11-year-old son, Jake, played by David Mazouz (Criminal Minds).
Discussing his new role role, Sutherland commented: “There was something interesting because obviously this is very different to 24. Yet there is a real similar through line in the kind of character of the man. Jack Bauer would be faced with unbelievable circumstances in the course of a day and he would never win completely.”
The 24 star continued: “This guy is never going to win either. He’s never going to have the quintessential relationship of a father and a son. And yet he perseveres and that’s a great kind of character statement and I identified with him greatly on that.”
The cast of Touch also includes Lethal Weapon star Danny Glover as a professor and British actress Gugu Mbatha-Raw (Doctor Who) as a social worker.
