Watch the new The Gifted teaser and learn about the power of family
FOX has released a new The Gifted teaser at the Television Critics Association press event today. In the video, entitled “Family is the Ultimate Power,” we go a little deeper into the family who’s life has been turned upside down, when the discovery of the children’s mutant powers mean serious danger. They’re forced to go on the run in a world where all mutant powers are required to be registered with the government. You can check out the new The Gifted teaser in the player below.
The Gifted has already been picked up for a first season and will air on FOX this fall with the pilot episode directed by four-time X-Men film director Bryan Singer. The Gifted stars Stephen Moyer, Amy Acker, Percy Hynes White, Sean Teale, Blair Redford, with Jamie Chung as the mutant Blink, and Natalie Alyn Lind as the mutant Polaris.
Produced by 20th Century Fox Television and Marvel Television, The Gifted will focus on two ordinary parents (Moyer and Acker) who discover 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.
