FX has officially given a pilot order for “Mayans MC,” the spin-off to the network’s “Sons of Anarchy”.
The story is set in the wake of Jax Teller’s suicide. EZ Reyes, a prospect in the Mayan MC charter on the California-Mexico border, struggles with his desire for vengeance against the cartel and his need for respect from the women he loves.
‘Sons’ creator Kurt Sutter will co-write, executive produce and direct the pilot which Elgin James also penned. Sutter has previously claimed that the show’s “tone, pace, storytelling will be unique”. Production on the pilot will begin in March with Fox 21 Television Studios and FX Productions producing.
