The upcoming ‘Sons of Anarchy’ spinoff currently titled ‘Mayans MC’ has landed veteran actor Edward James Olmos in one of the starring roles for the show.
Olmos is best known for his work on series such as ‘Battlestar Galactica’ as well as a season long stint on ‘Dexter’ but now he’ll be tackling the outlaw motorcycle world in a new series developed by ‘Sons of Anarchy’ creator Kurt Sutter.
The new series focuses on the Mayan Motorcycle Club — a prominent group from ‘Sons of Anarchy’ — that takes place following the death of Jax Teller in the original series.
The main focus in the new ‘Mayans MC’ series will be on a a prospect named EZ Reyes who “struggles with his desire for vengeance against the cartel, and his need for respect from the women he loves.”
‘Mayans MC” has already been picked up to pilot for FX with a possible series order forthcoming based on the strength of that first episode.
The new series is expected to go into production in March.
