Marvel's New X-MEN Family Drama Series Has Been Given A Pilot Order At FOX

We knew Marvel and Fox's new X-Men TV show had a put pilot commitment, but it seems the final draft was good enough to secure a pilot order. We still don't have an official title just yet, however..

Fox has handed out its first drama pilot order of the season to the mysterious X-Men TV series from Burn Notice creator Matt Nix we heard about recently. The show, which will be co-produced by Marvel Television, will focus on a human couple and their mutant children going on the run and hooking up with "an underground network of mutants."

Though no new information was provided, Nix has previously confirmed that the still untitled show will be set in the "same general universe" as 20th Century Fox's X-Men movies, and will feature appearances from a few well-known characters. Who they'll be remains under wraps of course, but there has been some whispers of The Sentinels being involved, and that underground mutant group sound a lot like The Morlocks to us.

Nix will exec produce the X-Men drama with Bryan Singer, Lauren Shuler Donner and Simon Kinberg, with Marvel’s Jeph Loeb and Jim Chory also on board.
