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.
