FX Orders Drama Script from Sons of Anarchy Creator/Showrunner Kurt Sutter and former Hell on Wheels Showrunner John Shiban

"Lucas Stand"

LOS ANGELES, February 26, 2013 - FX has closed a drama series script development deal with Sons of Anarchy Creator/Showrunner Kurt Sutter and former Hell on Wheels Showrunner John Shiban for "Lucas Stand."

Based on an idea by Sutter, Lucas Stand is a dark, action/horror drama, with both episodic and serialized elements. It 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.

In addition to Lucas Stand, Sutter and Sons of Anarchy star Katey Sagal, with Belle Zwerdling, are developing a dark comedy at FX, Diva. Clown. Killer.

Lucas Stand is Shiban's first project with FX.

Sutter's hit series Sons of Anarchy is the highest-rated series ever on FX. The recently concluded fifth season was the series' highest rated season yet with first-run episodes averaging 6.37 Million Total Viewers and 4.35 million Adults 18-49, marking a +16% increase in both categories vs. Season 4. It was consistently television's #1-rated show in delivery of Adults 18-49 and key male demos in the Tuesday, 10 PM time period last fall. When totaling all impressions delivered - linear, online, VOD - last season of Sons averaged 9.75 million Total Viewers weekly, which was a +13% gain vs. Season 4 (8.64 million Total Viewers).
