In addition to the critical FX show, Fox has ordered a pilot for a new television show centered in the X-Men world of mutants and government officials hunting them. With Bryan Singer (X-Men, X2, X-Men: Days of Future Past, X-Men: Apocalypse) producing the show, and Matt Nix (Burn Notice) serving as the showrunner, the show (if ordered to full series) will focus on two parents on the run after their mutant child in discovered by government agents.

Although Fox’s mutant movies do not have a working relationship with Marvel per se, they do have a partnership on the TV level. Next month, FX and Marvel Television will be releasing Legion, and based on the previews, the anticipation is high for that show.
