Writer-producer Carol Barbee (“Judging Amy,” “Jericho,” “Hawaii Five-0”) is moving from CBS TV Studios, where she worked for six years, to 20th Century Fox TV, where she will join "Touch," the drama pilot starring Kiefer Sutherland, reports Deadline.com.
Barbee will serve as an executive producer along with the project’s creator, Tim Kring, the story notes.
"Touch" is about a father who realizes that his autistic son is communicating through a series of numbers and may be able to predict the future. Barbee’s pact, which starts in June, is a seven-figure overall deal, the article notes.
Barbee and Kring first met about 10 years ago on the NBC drama "Providence," where Barbee got her first writing job and Kring was a co-executive producer, the story notes.
