THE BASTARD EXECUTIONER (FX, New!) - Kurt Sutter ("Sons of Anarchy") has scored a pilot order from the cable channel for a period drama about "a warrior knight in King Edward III's charge who is broken by the ravages of war and vows to lay down his sword. But when that violence finds him again he is forced to pick up the bloodiest sword of all." Said effort comes from FX Productions and Fox 21 with Imagine Television's Brian Grazer and Francie Calfo also on board to executive produce. Filming of the pilot is slated to begin late next year after "Anarchy" wraps its upcoming seventh and final season. (Deadline.com)
