The project, from Heroes creator Tim Kring, will focus on Martin (Sutherland), who discovers that his autistic son may have the power to predict events before they happen.
Child actor Mazouz will play the role of the son, Jake, reports Deadline. His past television credits include Lifetime movie Amish Grace and guest roles on Mike & Molly and Private Practice.
Tim Kring wrote the pilot script for Touch and will also executive produce alongside Katherine Pope and Peter Chernin of 20th TV and Chernin Entertainment.
Touch is expected to debut at mid-season, though a pilot episode has not yet been shot due to Kiefer Sutherland's commitment to a Broadway play.
Fox's entertainment president Kevin Reilly previously described Touch as "a compelling drama" with "a really extraordinary [pilot] script".
