Several years ago a company called Genomex carried out a series of illegal and immoral experiments on human subjects, forever altering the DNA of any children they might have, to make them mutations from the norm. Now many of those children have grown up, and it has become increasingly difficult for the rest of the world to ignore the New Mutants in their midst. Genomex, under the direction of Mason Eckhart, one of the original scientists, seeks to exploit its creations. Others seek to protect them. A New Mutant Underground has sprung up, and one of the most prominent cells in that organization is Mutant X, a team of powerful New Mutants led by Adam Kane, head chief biogeneticist of The Genomex scientists who participated in the experiments which have altered the world forever.

A key concept to the series was that each episode featured a different guest star in the leading role, while series regulars played a supporting role. Episodes centered around an individual who had reached the end of their life in one timeline, and due to circumstances seen by their advocate or the judge, been given 3 days to travel into their past and convince their younger self to make a different choice at a pivotal point to affect a different outcome.
Season One featured Gordie Brown as Mr. Jones, and Paul Popowich played the role of Mr. Smith in Season Two. Al Waxman, who played Judge Othniel, died shortly before the end of the series.

Production notes:
Ten episodes were directed by scifi veteran David Winning; including "The Trouble with Harry" (Jere Burns, Brent Carver), "Moonshine Over Harlem" (Earle Hyman) and "It's a Hard Knock Life" (Markie Post). Veteran television producer Barney Rosenzweig (Charlie's Angels, Cagney and Lacey) oversaw the first season of the series.
