Not that there was ever any doubt that Tim Kring's Fox pilot TOUCH starring Kiefer Sutherland would get on the air, but the network wanted to reserve final judgement until after it sees the finished pilot. Fox entertainment president Kevin Reilly told reporters at TCA today that he saw the pilot last night and it was "extraordinary", firmly sealing the project's midseason series pickup. "It's a new character but it does have some doze of Jack Bauer in it," Reilly said about Sutherland's new role. TOUCH will be joining Fox's schedule this season.
