Bello will play an earth-mother type whose daughter had a similar gift to that of Jake (David Mazouz), the mute, autistic son of Martin (Kiefer Sutherland) who can predict future bad events. If the show is renewed, she could potentially become a series regular in Season 2.

Touch returned Thursday to respectable numbers, earning 11.7 million viewers and a 3.2 in the adults 18-to-49 demographic.

Prior to Prime Suspect, Bello starred on the small screen on ER.
