‘Sons of Anarchy’ spinoff ‘Mayans M.C.’ tackles border world

When “Sons of Anarchy” debuted in 2008, creator Kurt Sutter repeatedly heard the same comparison: it was the poor, white working class version of the HBO mob series, “The Sopranos.”

Now that “Sons of Anarchy” spin-off “Mayans M.C.” is set to launch, Sutter says he is prepared for it to inevitably be called the Latino rendition of the popular motorcycle gang drama. “But it’s more than that,” Sutter, the new series co-creator, told The Associated Press. “My hope is that as people get plugged into it…it becomes its own thing.”
