Underworld director Len Wiseman has joined FOX’s upcoming X-Men TV series The Gifted.
Deadline reports Wiseman will serve as an executive producer and will direct the show’s second episode, “A New World.”
Wiseman will be teaming up with The Gifted creator/showrunner Matt Nix once again, as the duo executive produced the Fox drama A.P.B. Wiseman also recently served as executive producer on FOX’s Lucifer and Sleepy Hollow.
The Gifted is set to premiere on October 2, with the pilot being directed by Bryan Singer. It follows the story of two ordinary parents (True Blood’s Stephen Moyer and Person of Interest’s Amy Acker) who find out their children have mutant powers. The family are forced to run from a hostile government and join an underground network of mutants who are fighting for survival.
