Fox is moving full steam ahead with their new X-Men TV series. Today we have learned that actress Amy Acker has been cast for the lead role in the show. She will star opposite the other two leads actor Stephen Moyer and actress Natalie Alyn Lind. Get more details on the new show below, and let us know if you are excited to see the X-Men on the small screen AFTER THE JUMP!
Produced by 20th Century Fox Television and Marvel Television, the series will focus on two ordinary parents (Moyer and Acker) who discover 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.
From writer Matt Nix (Burn Notice) and director Bryan Singer (X-Men: Apocalypse), the new series is still without an official title.
“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,” Fox Entertainment president David Madden said back in July when the show was announced. “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.”
