FX Closes Script Deal with Sutter, Shiban for 'Lucas Stand'

Joins 'SOA' Creator's Other Project for Network, 'Diva. Clown. Killer.' 2/26/2013 10:03 AM Eastern

 

FX has closed a script development deal with Sons of Anarchy creator Kurt Sutter and former Hell on Wheels showrunner John Shiban for drama Lucas Stand.

The action/horror drama follows the salvation quest of a damaged former special ops soldier, who has been chosen to traverse time and place to hunt down and kill Hell's law-breaking demons.

This is the second project that Sutter is working on for FX; the SOA creator also has a script development deal for his comedy project, Diva. Clown. Killer. It is Shiban's first project with the network.

The move falls in line with FX topper John Landgraf's priority of increasing the network's drama slate. The Americans premiered last month and has already been renewed for a second season, while The Bridge will debut this summer.
