FX greenlights Kurt Sutter's 'Crow' By MICHAEL SCHNEIDER FX has greenlit the pilot "Forever Sam Crow," a drama from "The Shield" exec producer Kurt Sutter about the world of biker gangs in Northern California. Sutter wrote the script and will exec produce along with Art and John Linson; project first hit FX's doorstep last fall Casting is under way, along with the search for a director; the exec producers and FX hope to get cameras rolling sometime early next year. FX and Linson Films are producing, while another studio will be brought aboard at a later date.

Set in fictional Charming,Calif.,"Forever Sam Crow" revolves around 33-year-old Jackson "Jax" Teller, the vice president of Samcro and son of the late club founder. According to Sutter, the character is at a crossroads in life and figuring out his place in both his blood family and his brotherhood family.

Sutter said he wanted to stay away from one obvious plot device -- making Samcro a meth-dealing group -- and instead has the gang maintaining a gun-running operation.

Sounds interesting. Still writing rom/com of biker and girl here, but we don't have any throat slitting. But it will be good and hero isn't perfect. Will watch out for that one, hope they don't do the Hollywood glamour thing on it and it looks like every one else. junie
