Fox has just released the first full trailer for their upcoming Marvel drama series The Gifted and it’s pretty intriguing. The trailer was released Sunday night, just ahead of the network’s upfront presentation on Monday in New York City. Just last week, it was announced that the network had given the green light to the series which was one of the most sought after pitches of the season.
The Gifted tells the story of a suburban couple, Reed and Caitlin Strucker (Stephen Moyer and Amy Acker), whose ordinary lives are rocked by the sudden discovery that 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 action-adventure drama, which features characters from the X-Men comic book franchise, comes from 20th Century Fox TV and Marvel TV. X-Men director Bryan Singer is heading up the series along with Matt Nix as writer and executive producer. Singer will also executive produce with Lauren Shuler Donner, Simon Winberg, Jeph Loeb, and Jim Chory.
In addition to Moyer and Acker, the series also stars Natalie Alyn Lind and Percy Hynes White play their children, Lauren Strucker and Andy Strucker; Sean Teale plays Eclipse a.k.a. Marcos Diaz; Jamie Chung plays Blink a.k.a. Clarice Fong; Emma Dumont plays Polaris a.k.a. Lorna Dane; Blair Redford plays Thunderbird a.k.a. John Proudstar; and Coby Bell as Jace Turner.
