Written by 

Fox's X-Men drama is inching closer to a pilot order at the network and nobody is as excited about it than writer Matt Nix.

Nix, talking with reporters Wednesday at the Television Critics Association's winter press tour — where he was there to support Fox midseason cop drama APB — offered an early glance at the top-secret Marvel project and how it will tie into the MCU and coexist with FX's X-Men take Legion.

The untitled project revolves around two ordinary parents who discover their children possess mutant powers. Forced to go on the run from a hostile government, the family joins with an underground network of mutants and must fight to survive. X-Men diehard fan Nix (Burn Notice) will serve as showrunner also exec produces alongside franchise veterans Lauren Shuler Donner, Bryan Singer and Simon Kinberg as well as Marvel's Jeph Loeb and Jim Chory.

"Fingers crossed, we get everything together and it enters the cycle for this year's pilots," Nix said, with sources telling The Hollywood Reporter that a pilot pickup could come in the next week or two.
