Fox's X-Men TV show has been given the title "Gifted," though it reportedly may have a new title by the time it airs. Producer Lauren Shuler-Donner revealed the title while tweeting a picture of the cast at a table read. A follow-up report from Entertainment Weekly cites an unnamed source who says "Gifted" is simply the working title. It also clarified that Originals actor Joseph Morgan, seen at the table read, has not been cast in the show but was reportedly simply filling in for someone else.

"Gifted" is also the name of Joss Whedon and John Cassaday's first arc of Astonishing X-Men, which reunited Kitty Pryde with the team and resurrected Colossus. Gifted, the show, focuses on a family who enters an underground network of mutants when they discover their children have mutant powers.

Additionally, actress Natalie Alyn Lind, who plays one of the aforementioned children, tweeted a picture of the cast of the pilot arriving in Dallas for filming, which included X-Men film director Bryan Singer, who helmed the pilot. Gifted is said to be connected to Singer's larger movie universe.

Gifted is in post-production. No premiere date has been set.
