Maybe one of the hardest working men in show-business... Mr Danny Glover has signed on to co-star, alongside Kiefer Sutherland and David Mazouz, in a new Fox TV drama pilot titled Touch.

The series centers on a father (played by Sutherland) who discovers that his genius son (played by Mazouz) "is communicating with him through a complex series of numbers and may even be able to predict events before they happen."

Mr Glover will play a character named Arthur DeWitt, a college professor who's an expert on "gifted" children, who works with father and son.

The new program was written and will be produced by the creator of the once popular "gifted humans" sci-fi TV series Heroes, Tim Kring.

As TVLine notes, if Fox likes what they see in the pilot episode, and pick up the series, Touch will likely debut during the middle of next season.
