FOX has ordered a new Marvel action-adventure series. The as yet untitled pilot has been given a put pilot commitment (put pilot commitment definition – the network has agreed to air either as a special or series. If the network does not air the pilot episode, the network will owe substantial monetary penalties to the studio. Generally, this guarantees that the pilot will be picked up by the network).
The series revolves around two ordinary parents whose children have mutant abilities and are forced to go on the run from a hostile government.
The pilot is executive produced by Lauren Shuler Donner, Bryan Singer and Simon Kinberg of X_Men movie fame; Matt Nix (creator/executive producer of Burn Notice) and Marvel’s Jeph Loeb and Jim Chory. Nix will write the script. For more, follow the jump.
