Fox Fires Up Work On X-Men TV Series

12 July 2016 1:40 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Though Bryan Singer’s Apocalypse ostensibly wrapped up the cinematic Mutant franchise – for now, at least – 20th Century Fox is keen to foster its X-Men franchise beyond film, with The Hollywood Reporter revealing today that the studio is finally starting to make some tangible headway on that long-rumored TV series.

Collaborating with Matt Nix and Marvel, Fox has reportedly issued a put-pilot commitment to the untitled action-adventure show. Without getting too into detail, put-pilot refers to a pilot order that the network has agreed to air as either a special or series and, generally speaking, guarantees that said network (Fox, in this case) will air the pilot episode.

Details remain few and far between at such an early stage, though we do understand Nix will spearhead the project as writer and executive producer, with the latter being a role he’ll share with Lauren Shuler Donner, Bryan Singer, Simon Kinberg, »
