Showrunner Matt Nix ‘X-Men’ TV Drama at FOX Will Feature Sentinels

Jan 17, 2017

Last week Deadline announced that showrunner Matt Nix was developing an X-Men drama for FOX. Not much is known on the project beside it will feature a family of mutants on the run. Longtime X-Men producer Lauren Shuler Donner spoke with IGN about the project confirming Sentinels as well as this year’s Legion series debuting on FX:

“Matt’s is much more a part of just the world in terms of there are mutants, mutants are hated and there are Sentinels — though very different from what we’ve seen before. You feel like you’re here in the X-Men world. With Legion, we’re our own universe. It gives Noah the freedom to do what he wants to do. Because we play with so many different timelines, and we rebooted and not really rebooted and all that, we felt like, OK, we’re going to throw it out there and hope the fans accept it.”

The producer does go on to confirm that the TV Shows and films will be set in different universes. “[We’re] making it separate. We’re our own world.”
