FX developing new drama from 'Sons of Anarchy' creator Kurt Sutter, ex-'Hell on Wheels' showrunner John Shiban

Date February 26, 2013

LOS ANGELES (TheWrap.com) - "Sons of Anarchy" creator Kurt Sutter and former "Hell on Wheels" showrunner John Shiban are developing a new drama project for FX, the network said Tuesday.

The drama, "Lucas Stand," has received a series script development deal from FX.

Described as a "dark, action/horror drama with both episodic and serialized elements," the project, which is based on an idea by Sutter, 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."

Shiban departed as showrunner from the AMC western "Hell on Wheels" in November, shortly after it was announced that the series had been renewed for a third season. Though AMC has sometimes had rocky relationships with its showrunners, the network said at the time that Shiban had departed after making " the personal decision that he will be unable to return as showrunner."

"He has asked the production partners to seek a replacement showrunner," the network said in a statement in November.

Sutter is also developing the dark comedy "Diva. Clown. Killer." for FX, with his wife and "Sons of Anarchy" star Katey Sagal and Belle Zwerdling.
