LOS ANGELES, Sept. 22 (UPI) -- Fox said Thursday it has ordered 13 episodes of a new U.S. drama series starring former "24" lead Kiefer Sutherland.

Sutherland will play a single father whose mute 11-year-old son communicates through numbers in "Touch," a series created by "Heroes" mastermind Tim Kring and set to premiere next spring, The Hollywood Reporter said.

"With Kiefer back on the network as the face and force behind this creative new series, I'm confident it will resonate with viewers this spring," Fox Entertainment President Kevin Reilly said in a statement issued to THR. "'Touch' is another ambitious series from Tim Kring that is beautifully executed and has incredibly resonant themes for our times."

Danny Glover and Gugu Mbatha-Raw are to co-star in the drama, the entertainment industry trade newspaper said.
