'Touch' creator Tim Kring: 'A lot of people have not found the show'

By
Touch creator Tim Kring has admitted that many people have "not found" the show.

The Kiefer Sutherland drama recently hit a series low of 2.53m in the US, but Kring told Assignment X that he is satisfied "creatively" with the Fox series.

"I think a lot of people have not found Touch - my sense is that a lot of people haven't found it," said Kring. "In this day and age, when you can find content in so many different platforms, we're hoping that the second season then feeds into people wanting to watch the first season, finding it online or finding it on DVD."

Kring admitted that the viewer reaction to Touch does not have the "same energy" as the fan feedback from his previous show Heroes but insisted that the two shows were never "intended to have the same fan base".

"[Touch] certainly is not that Comic-Con crowd," he said. "It was not designed to be that. To be really honest, I did not think about what kind of person [would watch Touch] - I wrote it because I wanted to write the story."

The writer/producer went on to reveal that he has not yet begun planning for a potential third season of Touch.

"Right now, we're really focusing on this one arc of the story," he said. "The show is going to have a much stronger serialised engine this [second] season than the first season, which gives us a certain license.

"It adds kind of an adrenaline to the show and I think it will generate a little more fan interest because of the serialised nature this year."

Touch continues on Fridays at 9/8c on Fox. Season two is expected to premiere in the UK on Sky1 in April.
