FX has closed a script development deal with Sons of
Anarchy creator Kurt Sutter and former Hell on Wheels showrunner
John Shiban for drama Lucas Stand.
The action/horror drama 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.
This is the second project that Sutter is working on for FX under his output deal with Fox21;
the SOA creator also has
a script development deal for his comedy project, Diva. Clown. Killer.
It is Shiban's first project with the network.
The move falls in line with FX topper John Landgraf's
priority of increasing the network's drama slate. The Americans
premiered last month and has already been renewed for a second season while The
Bridge will debut this summer.
