Heroes’ Tim Kring Finds The Touch at FOX


For a while there, Tim Kring was flying high with “Heroes” on NBC. Well, for one season, anyway. After a disastrous Season 2 made worst by the writer’s strike, “Heroes” never regained the momentum it generated in its first season. The show would hobble on for a few more years before finally being mercifully put out of its misery. All that is to say, Tim Kring is now back with a new show called “Touch”, and it’s been given a pilot greenlight by FOX.

“Touch” will take Kring back to the world of people with extraordinary abilities, in that it will “center on a father who discovers that his autistic, mute son can actually predict events before they happen.”

Okay, so it’s not exactly superheroes, but it’ll probably end up being superhero-ish.

    WTF.. The guy who ruined his own franchise… I never watched a tv show of this man after the horrible 4th and final season of Heroes. What about a miniseries or a movie direct to home video for a proper final of the show???

      Not really his fault. The show failed due to the writers going on strike, and then the same writers never got back on the horse after that. He did what he could, but it was too late.
