Maria Bello joins 'Touch'
Maria Bello is wasting no time hopping back on the TV train following the cancellation of her NBC drama Prime Suspect back in November.
EW has confirmed a Deadline report that the star is set to join Fox’s new Kiefer Sutherland drama series, Touch. She will play a mother whose daughter shares the same gift as the young main character (David Mazouz) in an upcoming multi-episode arc. Sutherland portrays Martin, the father of the young boy who can seemingly predict the future.
If the drama is picked up for a second season, Bello reportedly could become a series regular. Touch aired its second episode yesterday with a decent performance in ratings, with 11.7 million viewers and a 3.2 rating in the key 18-49 demo.
