Deadline has announced that the X-Men drama which is being written by Burn Notice creator Matt Nix has still not gotten a pilot order from FOX. Early versions of the script were met with enthusiasm from FOX, as well as producing studios 20th Century Fox TV and Marvel TV; despite not having a clear date for the pilot.
The untitled series, which had a put pilot commitment, focuses on two ordinary parents 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. The show appears particularly timely, dealing with the plight of minorities in society.
