New Kiefer Sutherland Drama 'Touch' Premieres on Fox Wednesday

Kevin Winter/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- Less than two years after his hit series 24 ended its run, Kiefer Sutherland returns to Fox on Wednesday with a preview episode of his new drama, Touch.

In the new show, he plays a widower and a father of an emotionally challenged 11-year-old boy, Jake.  With the help of a professor, he attempts to connect with Jake through his son's ability to recognize hidden patterns that are connected to the lives of people around the world.

Sutherland says he was hooked the moment he read the script, adding, "It's just such a beautiful piece about faith and hope and I don't think we can have enough of those two elements in our life and it certainly describes the dynamic between this father and son."

Danny Glover also stars in Touch, which airs after American Idol at 9:00 p.m. Eastern Time.  The show does not officially premiere until March 19.
