Fox Puts 'X-Men' TV Series In Development With Pilot Order

Fox and Marvel have given the go-ahead to a new 'X-Men' TV series.

The network has confirmed that it has handed a put-pilot commitment to the project that we first reported on last year, which means the network will have to pay a fair chunk of money if the show doesn't make it past the pilot stage.

'Burn Notice' creator Matt Nix will write with Marvel's Jeph Loeb, 'X-Men' director Bryan Singer and Simon Kinberg set to executive produce.

The new series 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."

"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," says Fox Entertainment president David Madden.

"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."

Meanwhile, FX's 'X-Men' spinoff 'Legion' has already been picked up to series.
