It looks like the Fox network is delving farther into the world of super hero shows as they have officially ordered the pilot for a new ‘X-Men‘ TV series that is going to be set in the same universe as the X-Men Movies.

It’s official, the mutants are coming to television.
Fox has officially given a pilot order to the still untitled X-Men universe television project being produced by 20th TV and Marvel Television. Matt Nix will write and executive produce the pilot.
The pilot follows two human parents and their mutant child who are forced to go on the run from the government and end up joining an underground mutant network.
This will be the second live-action X-Men project coming to Fox’s television network. Legion, from Fargo’s Noah Hawley, will debut on FX on Feb. 8.
Nix’s X-Men television series is said to be more directly tied to the X-Men mythology than Legion, which used the character of David Haller as a jumping off point to create its own mini-universe and supporting cast.
