On Monday, Oct. 2, at 9/8c, FOX will open another door to the Marvel universe on the small screen with the new family adventure series “The Gifted.” The series, which comes from 20th Century Fox Television in association with Marvel Television, revolves around a suburban couple who discover that their children have mutant powers. The fallout will feature plenty of action, drama and, more importantly, profound themes that may strike a chord with audiences in the way it does for the show’s accomplished executive producer Lauren Shuler Donner.
