Bikers, blood and now a Bastard?

For fans longing for their fix of dearly departed series Sons of Anarchy and True Blood, a new FX series is teaming up two familiar – but unexpected – faces.

SOA‘s Katey Sagal and True Blood‘s Stephen Moyer will costar in the period drama The Bastard Executioner, the latest offering from Sons creator and Sagal’s husband Kurt Sutter, 54.

Shooting begins March 19 in Wales for the story of a warrior knight, played by Aussie newcomer Lee Jones, who finds himself weary from the savagery of war but is forced to take up arms once again under King Edward I’s charge.

Like Sagal, 61, current FX regular Matthew Rhys (The Americans) will guest star on the series, which also stars Sutter, Flora Spencer-Longhurst, Sam Spruell, Darren Evans, Danny Sapani, Timothy V. Murphy, Sarah White and Sarah Sweeny.

Sons fixture Paris Barclay will direct Sutter’s pilot and produce alongside Brian Grazer and Francie Calfo.
