Fox will be partnering with Marvel for a yet untitled series will focus on two ordinary parents who discover their children possess mutant powers. The project has been developed from a pilot episode to a full series and that will mark the first Marvel series at Fox.

“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,” said David Madden, president, entertainment, Fox Broadcasting Company. “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.”
