Update: Mayans MC tv show, spin off from Sons Of Anarchy

In July, Kurt Sutter hired a new director for reshoots  and some roles were recast... this isn't anything unusual, they did it with the pilot of Sons Of Anarchy. Just smoothing out the look and feel to get it better and more likely to be a hit show with big viewer numbers... and hey, there is a lot of competition in tv shows now, since Netflix started making damn good tv shows

Sutter doesn’t seem to be bothered, however. “This was the process for SOA. Shows Fox/FX’s commitment to series. Allows me and Elgin to improve cast, script, and direction!”

In August, FX tv channel added Mayans MC to a viewing for execs to get a schedule roughed in
"It’s a good sign,” FX CEO John Landgraf said. “I’m really excited where we are in the process on Mayans. “I’m very confident about the future of the spinoff.”

Landgraf also said that he is excited about the show having an almost all-Latino cast. He expects to make a pickup in about three months.

Norberto Barba was recently tapped to direct and executive produce the reshot Mayans pilot.

It was the same situation we had on Sons, we had major recast and we reshot 95% of the pilot and that’s gonna happen again. What it does for me is it allows me to watch it and then go what didn’t work, what did work, and really do a big rewrite.

 “So, now they’re just literally waiting for the script. We had the team all together. I’m not gonna direct it because if it gets picked up, we’ll slam right into production. So, my other [executive producer] Noberto [Barba] is gonna do the reshoots, so hopefully that’ll all happen in August/September and we’ll go into production the first of the year.” said Sutter.

The original Sons of Anarchy pilot was reshot and recast (Scott Glenn originally played the Clay Morrow role before he was replaced by Ron Perlman)
