Former Hell's Angels Sues "Sons" Producer

Chuck Zito, who is reported to be the former Pres of the NYC Hells Angels is suing FX, claiming they stole his idea, or rather Kurt Sutter stole his idea about the hit series Sons of Anarchy. Zito says he developed an idea for a show about an "outlaw motorcycle club" back in 1998 and pitched it to FX in 2004.

FX did not have an official comment but producer Kurt Sutter, in his blog, SutterInk responded, and didn't mince words. "I'm sure this blog will get my ass kicked and begin a new wave of death threats, but fuck it. I'm tired of these fucking losers getting ink."

Almost from the start of development of the show, Zito has been telling anyone who will listen that FX took his idea and gave it to Sutter.

Sutter claims Zito is just looking for a quick buck.

"He tried to file a legal claim a few months back and it was so preposterous that I believe FX legal simply dismissed it.  So he's pissed and he's desperate.  What we are witnessing now is his "plan B".  And it's outlaw mentality in full gear.  He will take his bogus claim and shop it to every celebrity rag and website hungry for topical gossip, he'll go on Celebrity Justice, TMZ, any sleaze forum or cable access show that will have him.  He will become a bitter, juvenile gnat buzzing in the ear of FX and myself.  He will use lies, intimidation, and his big mouth to become such a pain in the ass, in the hope that Fox will throw some money at him to shut the fuck up.  It's not a coincidence that his claim hits while academy members are voting."

Zito isn't saying much at the moment, but has said that Sutter had no knowledge of motorcycles, gangs, clubs or the true biker world and only got the show because of his work on "The Shield" and because he was the golden boy at FX.  Zito is seeking $5 million dollars in damages.

Sutter address that allegation in his blog as well, saying, " 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. The same way there were dozens of mob family pitches before the Sopranos and crime scene pitches before CSI."

It seems the verbal smack down has begun.  First bitch slap belongs to Sutter.
