Fox Picks Up Pilot From 'Heroes' Creator

Plot details are slim but promising

Much like its fans, “Heroes” creator Tim Kring has moved on to other television endeavors.
Kring, who launched the superhero series for NBC, has hopped over to executive produce a pilot called “Touch” for Fox. Though few details have emerged about its plot, the drama is about a father who discovers that his mute, autistic son can predict the future.
“Touch” will mark Kring’s return to television after the demise of “Heroes.” That series leapt out of the starting gate in 2006 to both critical and popular buzz. However, ratings soon fell, and many fans felt the show lost its creative way, culminating in its cancellation last year.
Prior to “Heroes,” Kring produced dramas like “Chicago Hope,” “Providence” and “Crossing Jordan.”
No casting decisions for “Touch” have been made. Aside from executive producer Kring, the only names so far attached to the pilot are “Heroes” alumna Katherine Pope and “Terra Nova” producer Peter Chermin. The pilot was written on spec and developed with both Pope and Chermin before being brought to Fox.
Fox has already ordered several scifi pilots this season, including the highly-anticipated Steven Spielberg project “Terra Nova” and a time-bending mystery called “Alcatraz.”
Among the network’s other offerings are a single-camera comedy pilot called “Little in Common” from “Veronica Mars” creator Rob Thomas that follows three families connected through youth sports.
