The day after a former member of the Hell’s Angels, Chuck Zito, declared that FX’s "Sons of Anarchy" had been his idea and filed a $5 million breach suit against the network, the creator of the TV show, Kurt Sutter, used his blog to set the record straight.
In his blog, Sutter wrote emphatically, "Having the f*cking idea is not the show. There have been dozens of outlaw motorcycle TV dramas pitched in the last ten years. None of them has made it to series, except SOA. Because they sucked."
