FOX’s Futurama famously traded in nerdy math and science gags, but did you know multiple writers had actual PhDs and Harvard diplomas, even creating a real-life proof for one episode? Or that Simpsons creator Matt Groening nearly pulled the plug over FOX’s nerves about Bender? Set your cryo-tubes for the 31st century, as the 32nd episode of ‘You Think You Know TV?’ blasts off with the Planet Express crew for some sci-fi facts from Futurama.
Any surprise that Sons of Anarchy creator Kurt Sutter would dive right back into FX for medieval drama The Bastard Executioner was compounded by the series’ lackluster performance, quietly airing its season finale only last night. That “season” has notably, and publicly become “series,” as Sutter himself opted to announce its cancellation via a Hollywood Reporter ad.
FX's 'The Bastard Executioner' brings plenty of Kurt Sutter's same 'Sons of Anarchy' style to the middle ages, but does the sword-swinging followup cut twice as deep? Our early spoiler-free review, before 'The Bastard Executioner' makes his first kill in tonight's two-hour premiere.
Despite Sons of Anarchy’s end only arriving late last year, we’re already set to begin another cycle of creator Kurt Sutter’s violent narrative by next week’s premiere of FX’s The Bastard Executioner. We’ve seen a few brief spots, but the gorgeous production design is on full display by the full set of photos from next week’s premiere.
Kurt Sutter’s FX Sons of Anarchy followup The Bastard Executioner has hacked off a few teasers and trailers by now, but we still haven’t found the strongest sense of the new medieval-set series. That changes with a full behind-the-scenes trailer for the series, chock full of testimony from cast and crew, and new footage.
Kurt Sutter’s FX Bastard Executioner should prove one of the more interesting experiments of the fall (and not just by casting Ed Sheeran), and even after its first trailer, each teaser takes us a little closer into a world of medieval horror. Swords swing, blood flies, and supporting cast are all on display in a new round of Bastard Executioner teases.
A few days ago at Comic-Con 2015, we had the luxury of catching Sons of Anarchy creator Kurt Sutter’s exclusive preview of FX’s The Bastard Executioner, promising a “dark as pitch” vision of medieval brutality. Now, the Bastard is on full display to the public, as FX debuts the first official promo for the new Kurt Sutter saga.
It was the end of an era at Comic-Con 2015, as for the first time in years, Sons of Anarchy creator Kurt Sutter wasn’t on hand himself to preview the latest bloodsport. That isn’t to say that Sutter didn’t attend in spirit, instead sending along an exclusive preview of September FX premiere The Bastard Executioner, and we were on hand for all the gory details.
Sons of Anarchy’s ultimate end is only a few miles behind in our rear-view mirrors, and already series creator Kurt Sutter and star Katey Sagal are back in the limelight. Not only has the first photo of Sagal’s Bastard Executioner character emerged, but so too will FX bring The Bastard Executioner to Anarchy’s old slot at Comic-Con 2015.
Sons of Anarchy may have taken its final ride, but series creator Kurt Sutter is far from finished with FX. The network has officially handed down a series order to medieval drama The Bastard Executioner, chopping off the first bloody photo in the process.
