FOX Gives The Greenlight And Orders Pilot For New X-Men Series
Television: Outsiders on 2017-01-24


FOX has decided to greenlight its planned live-action X-Men series that will tie into the X-Men films. The series, untitled and without any specific characters mentioned in the announcement, will be an "action-adventure" with two human parents whose child develops 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."

The series is a joint production between the two companies, with Fox's Bryan Singer, Lauren Shuler Donner, Simon Kinberg, and Matt Nix joining Marvel's Jeph Loeb and Jim Chory as the production staff. Nix (Burn Notice, APB) will lead creative production.

"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,” said David Madden, president, Entertainment, Fox Broadcasting Company in the release. “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."

Marvel's head of television, Jeph Loeb, who will be producing the series, said, "Marvel Television is thrilled to be co-producing with 20th Century Fox Television on our first project. Matt's a huge fan of X-Men and his take on the X-Men universe, with its rich characters and high-stakes adventure, is exactly the show we want on FOX. It's a great team of creative producers who will be making something entirely unique."
