That Glorious Anarchy Bastard’s Back

SoHo will premiere The Bastard Execution, the latest series from Sons of Anarchy creator Kurt Sutter, on September 30.

The bloody 14th-century drama will screen 8.30 Wednesdays, pre-empting the HBO documentary season scheduled for that slot.

About a warrior who becomes a journeyman execution during the turmoil that was medieval Wales, it stars Lee Jones in the titular role, Anarchy’s Katey (Mrs Sutter) Sagal, True Blood’s Stephen Moyer and Sutter himself.

The series goes to air on FX on September 15 and, according to Deadline Hollywood’s review, is a “strong show that cuts sharp and deep. Honestly, it is something you don’t want to miss …

“The ethos of Bastard reminds me a lot of the Christopher Nolan-directed Batman trilogy — with its heroic nuance and almost overwhelming sense of sadness.”

In an interview with Sutter in Rolling Stone magazine, the series sounds like Game of Thrones meets Anarchy.

“In the end, it all boils down to the same thing,” Sutter argues. “Great storytelling, characters you care about, and killing people in artful and original ways.”
