Person of Interest and Angel alum Amy Acker is set to play opposite True Blood‘s Stephen Moyer in Fox’s as-yet-untitled Marvel drama pilot.
Penned by Matt Nix (Burn Notice), the projects focuses on two ordinary parents (played by Acker and Moyer) 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.
