FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 8, ON FOX
TOUCH, the critically acclaimed adventure drama series starring Emmy Award winner Kiefer Sutherland (“24”), will launch its anticipated second season with a special action-packed two-hour premiere on Friday, Feb. 8 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.
In Season Two of TOUCH, the dramatic action shifts from New York to Los Angeles, where single father MARTIN BOHM (Sutherland) and his gifted son, JAKE (David Mazouz), are on the run. Their critical mission is to help distraught mother LUCY ROBBINS (Maria Bello, “ER”) find her Missing – and equally gifted – daughter AMELIA (newcomer Saxon Sharbino). When it’s discovered that they are all targets of the mysterious and possibly sinister corporation, Aster Corps., the desperate search for Amelia intensifies. Factoring into the unfolding equation is the genius of Aster Corps., CALVIN NORBURG (Lukas Haas, “24”), who’s on the verge of making a career-defining discovery, as well as the extreme religious zealot GUILLERMO ORTIZ (Said Taghmaoui, “G.I. Joe: The Rise of The Cobra”), who stops at nothing to attain his vision. As ominous connections appear, Martin remains determined to uncover a global conspiracy in order to protect his family and save the lives of the innocent.
