[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]SOAFX is revving up its Mayans-centric Sons of Anarchy spinoff.

The cabler announced Wednesday that SOA creator Kurt Sutter has handpicked up-and-coming writer Elgin James to pen the pilot for the potential series, which has been titled Mayans MC. Sutter will be credited as a co-creator alongside James.

FX, meanwhile, calls Mayans MC “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.”

On his decision to hire James, whose most notable credit is the 2012 indie Little Birds, Sutter said in a statement, “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.”[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_empty_space height=”10px”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_btn title=”Click HERE to read more from TvLine.com” style=”3d” color=”danger” align=”center” link=”url:http%3A%2F%2Ftvline.com%2F2016%2F05%2F11%2Fsons-of-anarchy-spinoff-mayans-mc-fx-elgin-james%2F||target:%20_blank”][/vc_column][/vc_row]
