Kurt Sutter is bringing his love of outlaws to Discovery.
The Sons of Anarchy creator has teamed up with the network for Kurt Sutter's Outlaw Empires, a six-part series that will follow and feature firsthand accounts of the most iconic gangs in American history.
"I've made a career writing about fictitious anti-heroes. To create these worlds, I've spent a lot of time with active members on both sides of the law. And if I had to pick the most interesting of the two, the choice is obvious — we all love the guys in black," Sutter said in a statement. "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 gangs profiled are the Crips, Outlaw Bikers, the Irish Mob, Nuestra Familia, the Italian Mafia and the Aryan Brotherhood.
Kurt Sutter's Outlaw Empires will premiere Monday, May 14 at 10/9c on Discovery.
