'Kurt Sutter's Outlaw Empires' will air on Discovery
The fifth season of "Sons of Anarchy" will air on FX this fall, but series creator Kurt Sutter hasn't slowed. He's got another series set to premiere next month on Discovery: "Kurt Sutter's Outlaw Empires."
The six-part series, executive produced by Sutter, will delve into the real-life worlds of various criminal organizations, including the Crips, the Aryan Brotherhood, the Irish mob, the Italian mafia and the Nuestra Familia. (Of course, biker gangs will get their own episode as well.)
In a statement, Sutter said, "This isn't about making a judgment call on who’s good or bad. As a storyteller, I'm drawn to these personal, intimate accounts of why these men made the choices they made and what it's like to be a member of an outlaw organization."
The first episode will premiere at 10 p.m. May 14. Sutter's fictional biker gang drama, "Sons of Anarchy," has been renewed for a fifth and sixth season.
