Sons of Anarchy Boss Developing FX Comedy Diva. Clown. Killer., Eyes Katey Sagal to Star

Kurt Sutter Diva Clown KillerFX is staying in the Kurt Sutter business, ordering a pilot script for a new half-hour comedy written and produced by the Sons of Anarchy creator and (possibly) starring his wife, Katey Sagal.

The project, Diva. Clown. Killer., is described as a dark, absurd comedy about an 80’s has-been rock diva, her dysfunctional son who makes his living as kid’s party clown, and of course, an assassin. Sutter is eying Sagal for the lead role, depending on her availability with Sons of Anarchy.

“I look at SOA as being an intense drama, where the murder and mayhem are made palatable by absurd, dark humor,” said Sutter in a statement. “This half-hour will be an absurd, dark comedy, where the story is fueled by murder and mayhem.”

Should Diva. Clown. Killer receive a series order, Sutter would bring in a showrunner.
