Kiefer Sutherland Eyes TV Return With Fox Drama Pilot From 'Heroes' Creator

Deadline says:

EXCLUSIVE: Kiefer Sutherland is mulling a return to primetime with another Fox drama. The 24 star is in negotiations to topline drama pilot Touch, from Heroes creator Tim Kring. Like 24, Touch is produced by 20th Century Fox TV. Co-produced by Chernin Entertainment, Touch centers on a father (the role Sutherland has been offered) who discovers that his autistic, mute son can predict events before they happen. Kring wrote the project on spec, his first pilot script since Heroes. Charles McDougall, who has helmed the pilots for ABC's Desperate Housewives, ABC's The Good Wife and, most recently, Fox's The Chicago Code, is in talks to direct.

Wasn't too fond of Heroes. At first it was decent, then it turned into your standard NBC plot and got boring as heck.

If things run accordingly, this show will either fail or be extremely succesful at first then slowly fall down hill. Thats how its been for a lot of named actors.

I heard the same thing over the years. First season was great and then it went downhill and then just fizzled out before finishing.

I do want to eventually see it because I'm an Ali Larter fan.
