It Will Never End

There is great excitement in the Thirty Mile studio Zone today as FX Networks and Variety and The Hollywood Reporter and Kurt Sutter all announced within minutes of each other that a pilot for Sutter’s new biker drama  Mayans MC will filmed in March.

Sutter previously produced the television biker drama Sons of Anarchy which ran for seven years on FX and was that cable network’s most popular show ever. After Sons, Sutter briefly produced a sword and sorcery show called The Bastard Executioner. Even Sutter has admitted nobody watched that.

The Thirty Mile Zone, by the way, or studio zone or simply the TMZ – from which Harvey Levin’s syndicated gossip show gets its name – is an imaginary circle with a 30 miles radius centered at the intersection of West Beverly Boulevard and North La Cienega Boulevard in Los Angeles. If you work in the entertainment industry, as say an extra with the “special skill” of riding a motorcycle, the people who make the magic pay you a standard fee if the production is filmed in the TMZ. They have to pay you more if you have to ride all the way to places like Orange County or Ventura or Dago.

Drugs And Women

Based on the limited information about the new series FX has revealed so far, it sounds like this show might do a lot of filming in San Diego. It also sounds like it will be inspired by the recent Netflix series Narcos, last year’s documentary Cartel Land and last year’s film feature Sicario as much by anything specific to motorcycle outlaws. It also sounds like it will be aimed at women – as the last five or so seasons of Sons of Anarchy were aimed at women.

Decide for yourself. Mayans MC will be set in the present, as the Network put it, “ in a post-Jax world, where EZ Reyes, a prospect in the Mayan MC charter on the California/Mexico border, struggles with his desire for vengeance against the cartel, and his need for respect from the women he loves.”

The network hasn’t yet announced who will play EZ Reyes. According to numerous reports, Emilio Rivera who played the Mayans president in Sons of Anarchy will be in this series, too.

Suits Had Notes

The proposed series seems to have been radically reworked since last May when FX announced it had bought a script for the pilot. Then the network said the show would “be a dark, visceral family drama that takes a new look at the most American of icons, the 1% outlaw, this time reflected through a Latino lens.”

The current script was written by Sutter and a chameleon named Elgin James whose ethnicity and street credibility seems to evolve interview by interview. “I wanted to find a strong, unique Latino voice. Because I didn’t think a white guy from Jersey should be writing about Latin culture and traditions. Elgin is that voice,” Sutter said last spring.

Sutter will direct the pilot episode. If the network likes what it sees Mayans MC will probably make FX’s fall schedule.

    At first we had Harley Riders talking shit about Sportsters… then thanks to SOA we have Harley Riders also talking shit about Dynas, then we had the Harley-riding-chopper-snobs talking shit about Harley Davidson as a whole, NOW we’re going to have Harley riders talking shit about Road Kings, etc… Can’t wait till all Harley Riders are just ragging on every and any Harley.

  2. bcnasty Says:

    great and I just picked up a low mileage 2004 Road King

  3. Desdicado Says:

    As usual, Nuke n’ Pave Dave hit it on the head. This country is so obsessed with the diversity germ. So when will we see a MC drama on Eskimos or maybe LGBT…… oh shit, hope I didn’t give someone an idea.

  4. Austin Says:

    @Hangaround – Right?!? *laughing*

  5. Hangaround Says:

    I for one cannot wait for the whole flood of customized, low miles, road kings to hit the classifieds shortly after this show airs! Im already saving!’

    “a post-Jax world, where EZ Reyes, a prospect in the Mayan MC charter on the California/Mexico border, struggles with his desire for vengeance against the cartel, and his need for respect from the women he loves”

    barf. sounds like a flop.

    If any gov. grant money is received by Hollywood producers or writers, the “shows” are gov. FUNDED propaganda.

  8. Dino Says:

    I liked The Bastard Executioner.

  9. Base Says:

    It is called Television programing for a reason.

    It is not so much the show it’s self, but the use of the show by DOJ to manipulate the populace. They quickly point out the behavior of the outlaws and look past the behavior of the LEO. Taking any broadcast for more than anything than entertainment is a foolish endeavor. At times that includes the news, especially the major broadcasters!

    Did anyone even think about contacting Citizen Z at all. I know,I know. Save the world from itself by more bullshit on TV. Lets all run out and see the next generation of assclowns.

  11. Concerned Citizen Says:

    How does a half blacc half white guy write about things from a Latino perspective?

  12. Paladin Says:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iwsR5SQG1GA is comedy. What Sutter spews is not only insulting, but continues to taint jury pools so that a member or members of a MC can’t get an unbiased jury trial.

    @Lonewoofwoof. I for one as a matter of principle would not be seen on one of Sutter’s shows. Would I like to have some extra money to be able to spend on strippers and blow? Yes. But is it worth losing respect and what you believe in? NO! May I ask why you are on here trolling?

    I didn’t know that seeing things differently or being so insulant as to question things was being a troll. But if it is, then based on what you’ve said about you not being seen on one of Sutter’s shows, may I ask, why are you on here trolling?

    It’s tough to be hit with a question that shakes the very foundation of your core beliefs.

    I can see that it was one that the faithful would never allow themselves to even consider. “Why would those guys agree to participate in a comedy about our lifestyle? Just for money?”

    Since it is so upsetting, I’ll retract my question.

    @LoneWoofWoof

    Obviously you cant tell the difference between a drama series and a comedy series
    Maybe that is part of your issue, as for one no one bothered to answer your query that would be due to the fact that it really isn’t worth a response.

    You assume we wouldn’t appreciate comedy but I disagree with your on that point, every time we see you Urine Order members with your sewn on patch sets out and about plying tough biker guy, we laugh are ass off, even more so when you fill out your hurt feelings report for the cops as your sobbing on their shoulder about how those other guys were making fun of you and whooped your ass makes us laugh all the time

  17. Nuke n' Pave Dave Says:

    And another thought: This is just one more step in the Hispanicization (sp?) of America. So now we’ll have a herd of maracon pendejos (queer idiots) for entertainment of the (m)asses of TV babies. Just what this country needs! More damned multi-cultural propaganda! You’re so right, Rebel, it will never end…

    You going to be at Frost Hill tonight?

  20. Grimey Says:

    does that mean more d-bag t-shirts and fake clubs cropping up?

  21. popeye Says:

    This should help harleys lagging sales figures as a whole new group of “bikers” head to the dealership to buy a brand spankin new harley for the mancave and a pre-packaged “bad ass” lifestyle complete with a get back whip and a scowl. (If their wives give them permission)

  22. Phuquehed Says:

    Hey Pigwoof…how often are you watered? Your stupidity makes us believe you have nothing on Pet Rocks and so must be closer to some form of plant life, like possibly the vile and hated brussels sprout perhaps.

  23. NCRider Says:

    LoneWoofWoof – I am now convinced. You are probably a cop. Under “More Tampa Television” you said, “My knowledge and experience don’t impress me that much either. I’ve enjoyed motorcycles for over 50 years, but that’s not very significant one way or the other. I’ve never considered myself a biker, but I do lay claim to being a rider…”

    According to all of that, you would not know who “Sonny Barger, Chuck Zito, David Labrava or Rusty Coones” even are. Maybe Sonny Barger but not the others. Ya need to be more careful. Lol. That’s all from me. Have a good day.

  24. Gar SMC Says:

    WTF? Again

  25. NCRider Says:

    Woof – You said, “So how many of you guys, as a matter of principle, would turn down an offer to be a paid member of the cast?”

    That is simply a stupid ass thing to say. I am not, am not, am not trying to stir you up, but that is just another comment you’ve made that is just wrong.

    Hit the donate button. Even a troll should help pay.

    Perpetually mystifies me how we always seem to have one or two posting here who are pigs, provocateurs, urine-odor fanboys, or some other breed of troll. There ain’t enough actionable info to keep any but the most desperately ignorant piggy happy, and most of ’em say they “don’t have anything to do with that”, so why stay? Must have been deprived of something-or maybe given something-as a child to warp them.

    So how many of you guys, as a matter of principle, would turn down an offer to be a paid member of the cast?

    Apparently it didn’t stop Sonny Barger, Chuck Zito, David Labrava or Rusty Coones.

  28. Shovelhead Says:

    Soon all Iron Order members will be pretending to be Mexican and riding Cholo style Harley’s.

  29. Nihilist Says:

    I like your title for this, Rebel, very apt. Fucking Hollyweird fantasy bullshit. Didn’t Cheech Marin play a cop once? I smell a cameo with a Latino lens…Glad I killed my TV years ago.

  30. Wino Enzed Says:

    I’m feeling billious, what did Cher sing………o yea ..If I could turn back time. The Knob heads think this shit is real.Plays right into the filths hands !!

  31. Nuke n' Pave Dave Says:

    As usual, all the Hollywood hype hawkers will be telling us “Don’t miss it!” and, as usual, I won’t miss it at all…

  32. IronRider Says:

    I Think this is excellent news and am totally excited about it. This means there will be less Urine Order members out on the street because they will be having circle jerk night at their Precinct and will be unable to play tough guy when real MC members are out riding or socializing.

    I just hope Sutter and FX will consider making the new Mayans TV Series a nightly show airing 7 days a week so the Urine Order brotherhood can keep themselves busy high fiveing one another while enthusiastically cheering on both the cops and the Mayans members as they watch the show.

    I would just like to express my gratitude to Sutter and FX for keeping the Urine Order douche bags off the street while they circle jerk and explore alternative lifestyle choices.

  33. TX_Biker Says:

    Oh man I can see a whole new group of wannabe outlaws is about to be spawned….
