Kurt Sutter to Develop Comedy Series for FX
Dark comedy follows former 80s rock diva and her dysfunctional son

The half-hour is a dark comedy about an 80s has-been rock diva, her dysfunctional son who makes his living as a kid's party clown and an assassin. Sutter will write the script and serve as executive producer, along with his Sons of Anarchy star Katey Sagal and Belle Zwerdling. The project is a coproduction of Fox 21 and FX Productions.
This is the first script development under Sutter's output deal with Fox21. If the project gets a pilot and/or series order, Sutter will hire a writer/executive producer to serve as showrunner. Depending on her availability, Sagal may star in the new project.
Sutter said, "I look at SOA as being an intense drama, where the murder and mayhem are made palatable by absurd, dark humor. This half-hour will be an absurd, dark comedy, where the story is fueled by murder and mayhem."
