Kurt Sutter not Happy with how AMC handled Glen Mazzara of ‘The Walking Dead’
The producer of Sons of Anarchy show, Kurt Sutter, has criticized how AMC handled The Walking Dead show. This was after the network announced that Glen Mazzara who produces the show would step down from the series because of the differences they have on directing the show. Kurt said that the network has no appreciation or gratitude at all as the people running it are small minded and bottom line thinkers.
Kurt was annoyed by the disrespect the network has for writers and viewers and mentioned that when Glen took over Walking Dead it was a work in progress project and he successfully converted it into a viable TV show with a solid future. He added that without Glen, the future of Walking Dead is actually dim. Sons of Anarchy show airs on FX and is on its season 5.
Shawn Ryan, producer of The Shield show shared the same sentiments as Kurt regarding the network. He also lamented that based on common knowledge the network had cut short Breaking Bad show and now their claims that they have creative differences with biggest hits was confusing.
These allegations only leave people wondering whether the network is worth selling good shows to especially with other reliable competitors like FX, Showtime, HBO, Starz, Cinemax, A&E and TNT among others. The last half of season 3 of The Walking Dead series resumes on February 2013.
