Fox’s The Gifted premieres October 2, but the network is building up the hype and getting fans ready by releasing the first six minutes of the pilot online.
Based on their X-Men properties, this story is a family adventure series about an ordinary suburban family, the Struckers, whose lives change course forever when they discover their children have developed mutant powers. When the threat of a hostile government forces the family to go on the run to protect themselves, they join the ranks of an underground network of mutants. Together, the group fight to survive in a world where fear and misunderstanding put them at constant risk. “X-Men” alums Bryan Singer, Lauren Shuler Donner and Simon Kinberg are among the executive producers.
