FX takes a Stand

US cable network FX is lining up its next original scripted project with a collaboration from the former showrunners behind Sons of Anarchy and Hell on Wheels.

Kurt Sutter (Sons of Anarchy) and John Shiban (Hell on Wheels) have won a script development deal with FX for a new action/horror hybrid drama called Lucas Stand.

The story, created by Sutter, follows the salvation quest of a damaged former special ops soldier who has been chosen to travel through time and space to hunt down and kill Hell’s law-breaking demons.

Lucas Stand is Shiban’s first project with FX, while Sutter has a longstanding relationship with the network through Sons of Anarchy, which recently completed its fifth season.

Furthermore, Sutter and Sons of Anarchy star Katey Sagal, with Belle Zwerdling, are also developing a dark comedy for FX called Diva. Clown. Killer.
