Katey Sagal is boarding her husband Kurt Sutter’s next FX drama project The Bastard Executioner. Sagal confirmed the news today during a Sons Of Anarchy conference call with reporters. No details on her role yet, but she said she would “definitely be involved” in the period drama project.
Bastard Executioner tells the story of a warrior knight in King Edward III’s charge who is broken by the ravages of war and vows to lay down his sword. But when that violence finds him again, he is forced to pick up the bloodiest sword of all.
Sagal also was attached to a comedy Sutter was developing at FX, Diva. Clown. Killer, but that has taken a back seat to Executioner.
