A ‘Sons of Anarchy’ Prequel?

"A ‘Sons of Anarchy’ Prequel?"

I’m almost done with Season 4 of Sons of Anarchy, so keep your eyes peeled for a lot of blogging on the subject. But I noticed today that the show’s creator, Kurt Sutter, tweeted that “i’ve talked to [FX President John] landgraf about the 1st nine. he digs it, but thinks it might be best to put some time between SOA and a prequel. i agree.” I’d like to see that. I am, perhaps more than the average Sons of Anarchy viewer, in the questions of governance the show raises, whether we’re hearing about SAMCRO founder John Teller’s anarchist theorizing or seeing how the MC interacts with Charming’s law enforcement officials. But it would be neat to see how that synergy developed in the first place. Most of the big governance shows on television give us, in Rhett Butler’s parlance, empire building (Deadwood) or empire wrecking (The Wire). It’d be neat to see a single coherent story about a rise and fall.
