Fox’s upcoming “X-Men” series “Gifted” just kicked off production. Longtime “X-Men” producer Lauren Shuler Donner, who will also oversee the show, shared the first set photo on her Twitter. Though the photo doesn’t reveal much, it does show star Amy Acker filming a scene as director Bryan Singer looks on. In the shot, Acker is seated the passenger seat of a car, talking to someone in the driver’s seat.
