Kiefer Sutherland’s new TV drama Touch will bring sci-fi fans around the world together – they’ll be able to watch it at the same time.
The much-anticipated new show will preview in America on Wednesday but it will officially launch in March globally.

Sutherland, who has tasted international TV success as the star of 24, says, “We will put it out over the Internet. There will be all kinds of ways to view it and we will do a global launch.

“We’ll be the first show, I think, to open kind of worldwide all at the same time, so we’ll open in Europe, in Asia… in South America all at the same time, so that people who are watching the show can actually communicate with each another.

“So someone in Africa can actually have a conversation with someone in Belgium at the same time about the same show. Normally that’s been very difficult to do because of time zones.”
