After seeing success with “Legion” earlier this year, Fox is ready for another foray into the Marvel and X-Men universe. “The Gifted” will premiere on Monday nights this fall and is also executive produced by people behind the X-Men movie universe, as well as the Marvel TV universe.
Check out the description from Mashable below:
“It’s very different from [Legion], visually, and yet it’s very different from the X-Men films as well,” Singer told Mashable of The Gifted back in February. “It’s mostly about a family. It’s a family drama. There’ll be effects, powers, and things like that. But at its heart, it’s about a family. It’s an emotional story. The Gifted follows a suburban couple whose ordinary lives are rocked by the sudden discovery that their children possess mutant powers. Reed Strucker (Stephen Moyer) and his wife Caitlin (Amy Acker) are typical middle-class parents dealing with the realities of raising a family. However, when their teenage kids, Lauren (Natalie Alyn Lind,) and Andy (Percy Hynes White), are involved in an incident at their high school which reveals they are mutants, Reed and Caitlin do all in their power to protect their children. Forced to go on the run, the Struckers must leave behind their old lives to flee from a relentless government agency that tracks down mutants, the Sentinel Services, which includes Agent Jace Turner (Coby Bell). Complicating matters further is the fact that Reed is a prosecutor in the district attorney’s office tasked with going after mutants. Desperate and running low on options, the family’s only choice is to contact an underground network that helps mutants in trouble. The mutants in the network – Eclipse/Marcos Diaz (Sean Teale), Blink/Clarice Fong (Jamie Chung), Polaris/Lorna Dane (Emma Dumont) and Thunderbird/John Proudstar (Blair Redford) – are dealing with their own issues. With one of their members in prison and their team possibly compromised, they face an uncertain future in a world that looks increasingly dangerous for mutants.”
