Kurt Sutter (The Shield), the iconic creator and Showrunner of FX’s smash hit biker drama Sons of Anarchy, has inked a new deal with 20th Century Fox TV. Having worked with Fox through the entire 7 season run of Sons of Anarchy, Kurt Sutter has now solidified his place in their halls. 2 projects are currently in development through the deal.
First up, The Bastard Executioner, a new series set in England in 14th Century and filming in London. The Bastard Executioner follows a knight who has had enough of bloodshed and decides to leave it all behind. Unfortunately, he is forced into the role of an Executioner instead. The Bastard Executioner is being developed by Imagine for FX network, and was the brain child of producer Brian Grazer (Ransom, 24, Arrested Development).
Of most interest to Sutter’s fans, however, is a Sons of Anarchy prequel series, that is currently in very early talks. The prequel would explore the creation of the infamous Biker Gang that shares its name with the show.
