Deadline reports that footage from the Mayans MC TV show pilot was included in the promo for the new subscription FX+ platform the network will offer to Comcast Xfinity customers. The footage was shown during FX’s TCA executive session.
Just last month, we reported FX’s Sons of Anarchy spin-off pilot is planning to reshoot with some roles recast. According to the report, FX CEO John Landgraf said, “It’s a good sign. I’m really excited where we are in the process on Mayans. I’m very confident about the future of the spin-off.”
A sequel set after the events of Sons of Anarchy, Mayans MC centers on EZ Reyes, a prospect in the Mayans Motorcycle Club charter on the California/Mexico border.
It is still not clear which roles have been recast. Previously, the cast included J.D. Pardo, Raymond Cruz, Edward James Olmos, John Ortiz, and Clayton Cardenas. Norberto Barba is directing and executive producing the FX pilot.
Reportedly, Landgraf also expressed excitement that the new TV series boasts a predominantly Latino cast and expects to order it to series in about three months.
