O Kurt Sutter είναι ο δημιουργός για τις σειρές Sons of Anarchy και του spinoff του, Mayans M.C., μιας και το δίκτυο FX του έστειλε γράμμα μετά και την απόφαση του να αποστασιοποιηθεί και από το spinoff μετά την δεύτερη σεζόν.
Όπως αναφέρει το The Hollywood Reporter, ο Sutter ανέφερε τα εξης στο γράμμα: “As you know, I’ve removed myself quite a bit this season, allowing others to take a bigger role in producing the show. It appears that philosophy has backfired. It’s been reported by writers, producers, cast and crew that my absence and subsequent behavior when there, has only created confusion, chaos, hostility and is perceived as abandonment. Or at least that’s how Disney has interpreted it. I’m sure it’s true.This morning I was fired by Dana Walden and John Landgraf for all the complaints levied against me. Not the way I wanted to end my 18 year relationship with FX. At least being fired for being an abrasive dick is on brand. I deeply apologize if I’ve made people feel less than or unsupported. My intention was literally the opposite. But clearly I’ve not been paying attention. My arrogance and chronic distraction has created wreckage. Just know, I adore this cast and crew.”
