‘Sons of Anarchy’ Spinoff ‘Mayans MC’ Lands FX Series Order …

FX is opening the book on the next chapter of Sons of Anarchy.

The cable network announced Friday that it has handed out a 10-episode series order to Mayans MC, Kurt Sutter’s follow-up to FX’s long-running biker drama. The series will premiere in 2018, either in late fall or the summer pegged to the 10th anniversary of the flagship. 

The series pickup comes four years after Sons of Anarchy wrapped its seven-season run and brings Sutter back to the network after The Bastard Executioner.

For its part, Mayans MC hit a few speed bumps on its path to the small screen. First announced in August 2015, the spinoff following the recurring and pivotal players from Sons was picked up to pilot in December 2016. In July, news broke that the pilot was going to be completely reshot with several roles recast. Sutter stepped back as the pilot director and Norberto

‘Law & Order’ Boss on Hollywood’s Harassment Culture and ‘SVU’s’ Renewed Relevancy

After nearly two decades on the air, NBC’s Law Order: Special Victims Unit is the last of Dick Wolf’s original empire standing. It has outlasted three other Law Order spinoffs — Criminal Intent, Trial by Jury and Los Angeles (and could potentially outlast anthology True Crime, which is awaiting word on its future) and has a dedicated fanbase online. Plus, thanks to the growing movement to uncover pervasive sexual harassment in Hollywood and other industries, the show is as relevant as ever.

“Isn’t that amazing after 19 years? I’ve never seen a cast as excited as this cast is now,” showrunner Michael Chernuchin tells The Hollywood Reporter. “We’ve been doing this for 19 years, highlighting the predators and harassers and abusers. It’s good that it’s all coming out now. Maybe the world has changed a little.”

While the Harvey Weinstein scandal is still reverberating throughout Hollywood, Chernuchin and his team aren’t necessarily

‘Law & Order True Crime’ Season 1, Episode 8: The Sins of the Fathers

“Did you ask god for forgiveness,” Marta asks, “for making José the man that he was?”

Kitty Menendez’s sister has secrets as well. In a conversation with Leslie, she says that their father was a violent man. “Our house was chaos,” she says; amid the chaos, someone molested Kitty when she was a young child. “I don’t think I ever saw her truly happy again,” she adds, and so the chain of abuse receives another link. If we could, no doubt we would discover that the chain extends back further still. It’s the nature of violence to multiply; in Lyle and Erik, that violence simply found its critical mass, and its most perfect expression.

And thus is the morality play complicated, as happens with all true-to-life dramas under close inspection. Lyle and Erik inherited their violence, it’s true. But so did José and Kitty. For

TV Ratings Tuesday: ‘This Is Us,’ ‘The Voice’ and ‘Law & Order True Crime’ all tick up


Those cards and letters keep coming in.
I received a lengthy email from WQ. Now that ABC has announced “American Idol” as its Sunday 8-10 p.m. show in March, he was wondering what I felt would be the 10 o’clock series to take whatever advantage there is of the “Idol” lead-in. His choice is “Deception,” which is a procedural, and I tend to agree with him.
It seems there are three choices, assuming ABC will be putting a drama behind “Idol.” “The Crossing” is yet another sci-fi series with a bizarre premise that will probably not hold up for an entire season. “For the People” is a legal drama from Shonda Rhimes, and I have to assume that is targeted for Thursday night.
“Deception” is a classic “he’s a/she’s a” episodic procedural with an underlying mythology. In this one he’s a world-renowned
