HBC canceled Heroes in 2010, but if you read comic books, you know that superheroes are never dead. They always return somehow, usually as part of a event series which is marketed to make a few extra bucks. And this is no different.
NBC and Tim Kring have announced a new 13 episode miniseries called Heroes Reborn coming in 2015. Sound slike NBC is following Fox’s plan of limited event series. It might also help that the Marvel Cinematic Universe blew up since the show’s departure. Marvel fans have been mostly disappointed with Agents of SHIELD, and I’m sure NBC ‘s show hopes to be able to deliver superhero action that ABC has yet to.
They wouldn’t reveal many details, stating only that “we won’t rule out the possibility of some of the show’s original cast members popping back in.” NBC will also be launching a digital series (read: webseries) prior to the premiere that will “introduce the characters and new storylines.” Read the full press release after the jump, along with a short teaser trailer.

After seeing the trailer for Touch, I officially have a new show I’m excited to watch. The latest show from Heroes creator Tim Kring stars Kiefer Sutherland, back on Fox after 24, as the father of a young mute boy who has some kind of superhuman ability to predict the future through patterns in numbers and the universe. It sort of looks like Numbers meets Lost , or Knowing meets The X-Files. Also featuring Danny Glover and Titus Welliver, Touch has already been picked up for at least 13 episodes that will air Spring 2012 and you can get your first look at it after the jump. Read More »

We’re just now getting to see the first new shows of the fall, but it seems there’s at least one reason to start looking forward to spring already. Fox has just given a thirteen-episode order to Touch, a drama created and written by Heroes‘ Tim Kring and starring 24′s Kiefer Sutherland.
The series revolves around dad Martin (Sutherland) who comes to the realization that his mute autistic son Jake (David Mazouz) has an extraordinary ability to pick up patterns between seemingly unrelated events. Using numbers, Martin must communicate with his son in order to uncover the true meaning behind the mysterious connections. More details after the jump.

The men who helped to create such popular properties as Lost, The Dark Knight, Battlestar Galactica and Heroes are just a few of the people with brand new shows currently awaiting the executioner’s axe. The J.J. Abrams-produced show Alcatraz, Jonah Nolan‘s Person of Interest, Ronald Moore‘s 17th Precinct and Tim Kring‘s Touch are four out of dozens of pilots whose fates will be decided this month as the networks get ready to announce their fall schedules from May 16-19 at New York upfronts. And while it would be easy to assume anything these guys touch would most certainly make it to our television screens, Deadline’s sources say that some might not. Read more about the buzz on all those shows, as well as a ton of other upcoming pilots you have been anticipating (Locke & Key, Charlie’s Angels, Wonder Woman, etc), after the jump. Read More »

Since his hit television show 24 ended, Kiefer Sutherland has been on an entertainment walkabout. He’s experienced the end of the world with controversial director Lars Von Trier in Melancholia, debated the morality of murder with a priest for an upcoming web series called The Confession and is currently starring on Broadway in the Tony and Pulitzer Prize-winning drama, That Championship Season.
However, the lucrative, structured life of a TV star might soon be calling Sutherland back. He’s in preliminary talks to star in Touch, a Fox pilot from Heroes creator Tim Kring about a man whose mute, autistic son can see the future. There’s more information after the break. Read More »
