“Battlestar Galactica” and “Dexter” actor Edward James Olmos has been set to star in the Kurt Sutter-produced “Sons of Anarchy” spin-off series “Mayans MC” for FX.
Set post-‘Sons’ and after the death of Jax Teller, the action follows Mayan MC prospect EZ Reyes, a prospect on the California/Mexico border who struggles with his desire for vengeance against the cartel as well as his need for respect from the women he loves.
Olmos is Felipe Reyes, the family’s formerly strong patriarch who struggles to keep his past buried and lead his own sons down a lawful and righteous path.
Sutter will co-write the spinoff alongside Elgin James as well as direct the pilot. The series will have a different tone, pace, and storytelling style to ‘Sons’ along with a shift in locale much further south than the original’s Northern Cali setting.
