'X-Men' TV Series is Coming Soon at Fox

X-Men the TV series is now in development at Fox.

Fox is expanding their X-Men universe. According to reports, the network announced on Tuesday that it has handed out a put-pilot commitment to an untitled Marvel action adventure series. The project will focus on two ordinary parents who discover their children possess mutant powers. The kids are forced to go on the run from a hostile government, until the family joins up with an underground network of mutants and must fight to survive. Burn Notice's Matt Nix who is working as the show's showrunner on the network's upcoming APB drama, will write the show's script and executive produce the show alongside X-Men franchise veterans Lauren Shuler Donner, Bryan Singer and Simon Kinberg as well as Marvel's Jeph Loeb and Jim Chory. “Developing a Marvel property has been a top priority for the network — and we are so pleased with how Matt Nix has led us into this thrilling universe,” Fox Entertainment president David Madden said in a statement. “There’s comic book adventure, emotional and complicated relationships and a rich, existing mythology from which to draw. With the brilliant production crew behind this project, it has all the makings of a big, fun and exciting new series.” Fox is expanding their superhero line-up. They currently have DC Comics Gotham as well as Lucifer. However, this will be their first time dipping into the Marvel franchise. This news comes after ABC canceled sophomore drama Agent Carter and passed on Marvel's Most Wanted, a spinoff of the show's first scripted series Agents of SHIELD. In addition, CBS canceled Supergirl, which was later picked up by The CW.
