Cable Series Gets a Post-Program Talk Show, Emulating Forerunners 'Breaking Bad' and 'Walking Dead' EW
Mining what is turning out to be fertile cable terrain pioneered by AMC's "The Walking Dead" and "Breaking Bad," an FX series will now have its own post-program talk show.
EW.com's Inside TV reports that FX's "Sons of Anarchy" is the latest series to get a complementary talk show, in which the events of each episode will be discussed. FX has picked up three episodes of the post-show program, which will air online.
The show will stream on the network's website after the drama airs on the East Coast, the story says. The after-show will be hosted by Chris Franjola of "Chelsea Lately."
The report notes: "On Twitter, creator Kurt Sutter confirmed the show will follow a similar format to the AMC after-shows, with 'cast members, celebrity superfan and me' appearing."
The three after-show episodes are scheduled to accompany the season 6 premiere (set for Sept. 10), the season's fifth episode and the season finale.
AMC's "The Walking Dead" has the companion show "Talking Dead," while "Breaking Bad" has "Talking Bad."
