Two new ‘X men’ shows being adapted to television

“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.
