Kiefer SutherlandKiefer Sutherland is officially returning to TV. Fox has ordered 13 episodes of 'Touch,' a new drama starring Sutherland from 'Heroes' creator Tim Kring.

"'Touch' is another ambitious series from Tim Kring that is beautifully executed and has incredibly resonant themes for our times," Kevin Reilly, president of entertainment at Fox, said in a statement. "With Kiefer back on the network as the face and force behind this creative new series, I'm confident it will resonate with viewers this spring."

Kring wrote the pilot and will serve as executive producer on the series.

Sutherland stars as Martin Bohm, a widower and single father who struggled to connect with his mute son, Jake (David Mazouz). 'Undercovers' star Gugu Mbatha-Raw plays Clea Hopkins, a social worker who is sent to evaluate Jake's well-being. Soon Martin discovers Jake can see patterns that connect seemingly unrelated events and communicates with numbers. Danny Glover co-stars as Arthur Dewitt, a professor and expert about children who have special gifts with numbers.

"Every once in a while, you encounter a piece of material that you just cannot say no to," Sutherland said. "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."

'Touch' is expected to debut in spring 2012.
