Fox’s Untitled X-Men Pilot to Go Into Production

It doesn’t have a title yet, but Fox’s X-Men-adjacent television series that was announced last July seems to be moving forward. The network has now put the pilot into production, and (as it’s a put pilot) it means we’ll probably get to see it no matter the show’s final fate.

Matt Nix is showrunning, and the series will apparently have strong ties to the current Fox X-Men movie universe. The official synopsis for the show is actually fairly interesting:

The Untitled Fox Marvel Project 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 will be, of course, the second X-Men series to stumble to the screens recently, with the other being the soon-premiering Legion on FX.
