Bryan Singer fired as executive producer of drama series, Legion, on FOX; could lose producer title on The Gifted as well.

The accused sexual predator Bryan Singer has been fired as the executive producer on the X-Men spin-off TV drama series Legion of which the first season was broadcast in 2017 on FOX (DStv 125 / StarSat 131 / Cell C black 201).

Bryan Singer was one of three executive producers on the show.

Bryan Singer is now gone from Legion following sexual misconduct allegations including an allegation from a man who says Bryan Singer allegedly forced him to perform oral sex on the director and producer in 2003.

Bryan Singer is also facing a lawsuit claiming sexual assault.

Bryan Singer is still listed as an executive producer on the other FOX show, The Gifted, produced by 20th Century Television, but will likely see his name removed from that show soon as well.

Fox Entertainment president Michael Thorn confirmed that it's "looking into" Bryan Singer's role as an executive producer on The Gifted.

Both Legion and The Gifted have been renewed for second seasons, with Legion that was shown as an "Express from the US" series title in South Africa and Africa on FOX.

FOX Networks Group Africa (FNG Africa) has so far failed to start broadcasting The Gifted in South Africa and across Africa as promised earlier.
