Unlike many other movie directors, Bryan Singer is not afraid to balance time between the big screen in theaters, and the smaller one in the home. So when Singer’s name is attached to something like a pilot, it’s usually not the biggest news.

But then again, it’s not every day Singer steps in to direct the pilot of an X-Men television series.

Just a day after Fox announced it was ordering a pilot for an X-Men series, longtime franchise film director Singer is taking on the pilot, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The series, from Burn Notice creator Matt Nix, centers on “two ordinary parents who discover that their children possess mutant powers.” And because there’s a government that’s not too keen on mutants, the family has to go on the run, becoming part of an underground network of mutants, all fighting to survive.

Fox has ordered a put-pilot from sister company Fox 21 Television Studios as well as Marvel Entertainment. That means Fox must, at the very least, air the pilot, or pay what would likely be a substantial financial penalty.
