FOX has released the official trailer for the new Marvel tv series, The Gifted. The series is written by Matt Nix (Burn Notice) and directed by Bryan Singer (the X-Men franchise). The Gifted tells the story of a suburban couple (Stephen Moyer, Amy Acker) whose ordinary lives are rocked by the sudden discovery that their children possess mutant powers. Forced to go on the run from a hostile government, the family joins up with an underground network of mutants and must fight to survive.
The new series is based on the X-Men comic book franchise and so you can expect a number of familiar characters to appear from the books, such as Lorna Dane, Eclipse, Blink, and Thunderbird (John Proudstar).
Matt Nix is executive producer, alongside Bryan Singer, Lauren Shuler Donner and Simon Kinberg of the feature X-Men franchise and Marvel TV’s Jeph Loeb and Jim Chory. Along with Stephen Moyer and Amy Ackers, the cast includes Sean Teale, Jamie Chung, Coby Bell, Emma Dumont, Blair Redford, Natalie Alyn Lind and Percy Hynes White.
