Touch is an American supernatural thriller television series created by Tim Kring about a widower and single father whose quest to reach his emotionally challenged 11-year-old son will shape the destiny of the entire planet by exploring the hidden connections which bind together all of humanity.

Touch originally aired in South Africa on M-Net and M-Net HD from 6 August, 2012 to 20 May, 2013. See "Seasons" below for seasonal broadcast dates and times.

There are 12 episodes in the first season (a 13th episode aired in the USA months after the first season ended - that episode was aired in South Africa as the first episode of Season 2).

Season 1

We are all interconnected. Our lives are invisibly tied to those whose destinies touch ours.

This is the hopeful premise of the drama Touch from creator and writer Tim Kring (Heroes, Crossing Jordan) and executive producers Peter Chernin (New Girl, Terra Nova) and Katherine Pope (New Girl, Terra Nova).

Blending science, spirituality and emotion, the series follows seemingly unrelated people all over the world whose lives affect each other in ways seen and unseen, known and unknown.

At the story's centre is Martin Bohm (Kiefer Sutherland), a widower and single father, haunted by an inability to connect to his emotionally challenged 11-year-old son, Jake (David Mazouz).

Caring, intelligent and thoughtful, Martin has tried everything to reach his son. But Jake never speaks, shows little emotion, and never allows himself to be touched by anyone, including Martin.

Jake is obsessed with numbers—writing long strings of them in his ever-present notebooks — and with discarded cellphones.

Social worker Clea Hopkins (Gugu Mbatha-Raw) believes that Jake's needs are too serious for Martin to handle. She sees a man whose life has become dominated by a child he can no longer control. She believes that it's time for the state to intervene. So Jake is placed in foster care, despite Martin's desperate objections.

But everything changes after Martin meets Arthur Teller (Danny Glover), a professor and an expert on children who possess special gifts when it comes to numbers.

Martin learns that Jake possesses an extraordinary gift — the ability to perceive the seemingly hidden patterns that connect every life on the planet.

While Martin wants nothing more than to communicate directly with his son, Jake connects to his father through numbers, not words. Martin realises that it's his job to decipher these numbers and recognize their meaning.

As he puts the pieces together, he will help people across the world connect as their lives intersect according to the patterns Jake has foreseen.

Martin's quest to connect with his son will shape humanity's destiny.

Touch is a production of Chernin Entertainment and Tailwind Productions, in association with 20th Century Fox Television. Tim Kring created the series and wrote the pilot.

Kring, Francis Lawrence (Water for Elephants), Peter Chernin, Katherine Pope, Kiefer Sutherland, Suzan Bymel (The War at Home) and Carol Barbee (Jericho) are executive producers. Lawrence directed the pilot.
