UK start date confirmed for Kiefer Sutherland’s ‘Touch’

Posted Filed under

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.”
