PARIS, Sept. 29 (UPI) -- Fox is to premiere an extended trailer for its new U.S. drama series "Touch" at MIPCOM 2011 next week in Cannes, France, organizers said Wednesday.

The show's star, Kiefer Sutherland, will join executive producer Tim Kring and Fox Entertainment President Kevin Reilly in a Q&A session Tuesday at the conference for international buyers and media.

In the series, Sutherland plays a widower and single father who discovers his mute 11-year-old son is able to see things no one else can and the patterns that connect seemingly unrelated events.

"'Touch' is a surprising and special drama. From its international scope and big themes to a central character who doesn't speak a word, the show strives to break new ground for television," Reilly said in a statement. "During my keynote session, I plan to explore creativity in the connected age, and I can't think of a better show than 'Touch' -- or two better creative minds than Tim Kring and Kiefer Sutherland -- to help drive that discussion."

"MIPCOM is all about bringing together great television, great talent and providing great opportunities for delegates to access both," said Laurine Garaude, director of Reed MIDEM's Television Division.

Reed MIDEM is an organizer of international trade shows.
