The characters on the FX drama series Sons of Anarchy know a thing or two about crime rings. The men of SAMCRO dabble in various activities, some not entirely legal, as a means of income. Sons creator Kurt Sutter is apparently looking to branch out on the subject of crime rings, this time for an unscripted series for Discovery called Outlaw Empires. The six-part series will tell the stories of the most notorious crime rings in the United States.
Each episode of Kurt Sutter's Outlaw Empires focuses on a different "iconic American outlaw dynasty," from the Crips to the Irish mob and the Italian Mafia, the show will focus on the organizations and the people involved in them. Below is a more detailed look at which groups will be featured in the series, which premieres on May 14 on Discovery:
· Crips: One of the most violent and feared gangs in America, they started as a group of young boys determined to protect their turf & build their pride. How they grew, turned on each other, became corrupt & exploded is one of the most fascinating tales in American history. Premieres Monday, May 14 at 10PM ET/PT.
It's definitely an interesting topic to explore, and based on the trailer below, it looks like the aim for the series isn't just to profile the organizations, but to take a more personal look at each of them through the stories of some of the people who were directly involved. Sutter's name, face and voice are likely to draw viewers, especially as we wait for Season 5 of Sons of Anarchy to premiere.
