“Legion,” featuring Charles Xavier’s son David Haller from Marvel Comics lore, is in development at cable network FX, with “Fargo” showrunner Noah Hawley on board as a producer. The official description is “Since he was a teenager, David has struggled with mental illness. Diagnosed as schizophrenic, David has been in and out of psychiatric hospitals for years. But after a strange encounter with a fellow patient, he’s confronted with the possibility that the voices he hears and the visions he sees might be real.”
“Hellfire,” based on longtime X-antagonists The Hellfire Club, is in the works at the Fox broadcast network, developed for TV by Evan Katz & Manny Coto and Patrick McKay & John D.Payne .
Bryan Singer, the director of multiple X-Men films, is named as a producer on both series. Jeph Loeb, Head of Marvel Television, is also listed as a producer on both shows, as Fox’s live-action film projects are separate from in-house Marvel Studios films.
