FX Orders Kurt Sutter’s ‘Bastard Executioner’

Drama From ‘Sons of Anarchy’ Creator Will Bow This Fall

FX has picked up Kurt Sutter’s The Bastard Executioner as a series, the network said Friday.

The series, among those touted during Fox Networks Group’s upfront presentation in New York last week, will premiere this fall.

The 10-episode drama from the Sons of Anarchy creator is set the middle ages and follows a warrior knight in King Edward I’s charge who is broken by the ravages of war and vows to lay down his sword. But when that violence finds him again he is forced to pick up the bloodiest sword of all.

The Bastard Executioner, created by Sutter, stars Lee Jones, Stephen Moyer, SOA’s Katey Sagal and Sutter himself.
