|FOX‘s upcoming X-Men series The Gifted has just released a first look! In the player below, you can check out a brief The Gifted teaser trailer with the promise of the full trailer set to arrive May 15. The show, which has been picked up for a first season, will air on FOX this fall and has a pilot episode directed by four-time X-Men film director Bryan Singer.
Produced by 20th Century Fox Television and Marvel Television, The Gifted will focus on two ordinary parents (Moyer and Acker) 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.
Writer Matt Nix (Burn Notice) will executive produce and showrun the series.
“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,” Fox Entertainment president David Madden said back in July when the show was announced. “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.”
