FX says no to ‘Outlaw Country’

Cabler won't order pilot to series

FX has opted not to give a series order to “Outlaw Country.”

Cabler had gone forward with a pilot, but the net just recently decided the show didn’t offer enough potential for a series.

Exec produced by David Manson, who wrote the script with Josh Goldin and Rachel Abramowitz, “Outlaw” centered on a Nashville crime family.

The project starred John Hawkes, Mary Steenburgen, Luke Grimes and Haley Bennett. Fox TV Studios and FX Prods. were onboard as producers. Art Linson and John Linson exec produced with Manson. Michael Dinner directed the first pass on the pilot, and Adam Arkin came onboard for reshoots.

Next up for FX president John Landgraf is a decision on the fate of comicbook adaptation “Powers,” from Sony Pictures Television and FX Prods. Pilot, which was shot in the summer and stars Jason Patric, is also about to undergo reshoots.

FX can afford to be choosy in determining its upcoming drama slate: Net has been faring well of late with “American Horror Story,” which has been boffo out of the gate. Motorcycle club series “Sons of Anarchy,” nearing the end of its fourth season, also remains a consistent ratings performer.
