Mayans MC, the Sons of Anarchy spin off, has a pilot show completed


But, there's nothing out there about when they'll get on with production.

The story, sadly, sounds very familiar to the SOA theme, son stuck in the life, and the gang, he can't escape, trying to keep his woman happy. 

Mayans MC will focus on the struggles of Ezekiel “EZ” Reyes, a prospect in the Mayan MC charter on the California/Mexico border. EZ is the gifted son of a proud Latino family, whose American dream was snuffed out by cartel violence. Now, his need for vengeance drives him toward a life he never intended and can never escape.  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mayans_MC

Mayans MC is set in a post Jax Teller world, where EZ Reyes, a prospect in the Mayan MC charter on the Cali-Mexi border, struggles with his desire for vengeance against the cartel and his need for respect from the women he loves. http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/live-feed/sons-anarchy-mayans-spinoff-gets-pilot-order-at-fx-951834

Sons of Anarchy co-creators Kurt Sutter and Elgin James co-wrote the pilot script.
Sutter will exec produce and James will co-exec produce the drama from Fox 21 Television Studios and FX Productions.

Cabral will play Johnny “El Coco” Cruz, a full patch member of Mayans MC, Santo Padre. Former Army sharpshooter and weapons specialist, Johnny earned a section 8 for shooting a cigar out of his CO’s mouth from a half-mile away… while he was stoned. In addition to Pardo,

 Cabral joins previously cast Edward James Olmos, John Ortiz, Antonio Jaramillo and Clayton Cardenas.  http://deadline.com/2017/03/mayans-mc-richard-cabral-cast-sons-of-anarchy-spinoff-pilot-fx-american-crime-1202033325/

Olmos will co-star as EZ’s father, Felipe Reyes, the once strong Mexican patriarch, crushed by bullets and hard labor, who struggles to keep his past buried and lead his sons down a lawful, righteous path.

Jacquelin Obradors will play Marisol Reyes, the soulful matriarch of the Reyes family and EZ’s mother. Her rosary may be worn, but her righteous sense of justice remains vibrant. Edward James Olmos plays the Reyes clan’s patriarch. http://deadline.com/2017/03/mayans-mc-jacqueline-obradors-fx-sons-of-anarchy-spinoff-pilot-1202046021/

Emilio Rivera is in, reprising his role as Marcus Alvarez, President of the Mayan MC.

Also Raymond Cruz (Tuco from Breaking Bad, and Better Call Saul) just joined the series.

  1. Can't watch these shows because they swear too much. The swearing doesn't bother me but the damn channel has to hit every word with a loud BEEP three times as loud as the dialog, which sends my hearing aids spastic.
