FX has a taste for blood. With American Horror Story proving to be a hit, the network has now closed a drama series script development deal with Sons of Anarchy Creator/Showrunner Kurt Sutter and former Hell on Wheels Showrunner John Shiban (Supernatural, Rest Stop) 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.
Ah, the ol’ “hunting demons” thing. Hopefully, Sutter can refresh this concept we’ve seen play out – with varied results – on television many times before.
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.
