Young mutants and their parents are being hunted in the first trailer for The Gifted, Fox’s first Marvel series.
The X-Men-esque action-adventure series focuses on a suburban couple (played by True Blood‘s Stephen Moyer and Person of Interest‘s Amy Acker) whose ordinary lives are rocked by the sudden discovery that their children (The Goldbergs‘ Natalie Alyn Lind and Between‘s Percy Hynes White) 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.
Matt Nix (Burn Notice) penned the pilot, while Bryan Singer (X-Men) served as director.
The Gifted cast also includes Sean Teale (Reign) as Eclipse/Marcos Diaz, Jamie Chung (Once Upon a Time) as Blink/Clarice Fong, Coby Bell (The Game) as Jace Turner, Emma Dumont (Aquarius) as Polaris/Lorna Dane and Blair Redford (The Lying Game) as Thunderbird/John Proudstar.
