We reported a couple weeks ago that Fox was closing in on ordering a pilot for a live action Xmen series, well that has officially been confirmed today!
Variety has reported that Fox has officially ordered an untitled action-adventure pilot in the X-Men universe from 20th TV and Marvel Television. Matt Nix is set to write and executive produce.
The pilot will focus on two ordinary parents who discover their children possess mutant powers. Forced to go on the run from a hostile government, the family joins up with an underground network of mutants and must fight to survive.
This is the second Marvel TV project to go to a network in the Fox family, with “Legion” — a co-production between Marvel TV and FX, which is set to debut on FX on Feb. 8. If the series is picked, which is most likely will be, then this would be the second X-Men-based show to make it to television.
Lauren Shuler Donner, Bryan Singer, Simon Kinberg, Jeph Loeb and Jim Chory are also on board to executive produce the Fox pilot.
