In another profanity laced rant laid directly at the feet of AMC and TPTB, Kurt Sutter let's the world know how he feels and what he thinks about the goings on over at "The Walking Dead" (Zap2It, Jan 3).
The outspoken "Sons Of Anarchy" creator says "TWD" is a great show, it has "legs" it just needs the right person to take over, not just anyone but a person who truly knows what it takes to run a show. With the departure of Glen Mazzara and Frank Darabont before him, Sutter fears that those in charge are just "going to plug somebody else, some pour soul, in there ... my sense is they won't even hire a showrunner. They'll throw a s***load of executives at it and [elevate] a poor sap on the writing staff ... And that poor sap will ultimately be just expediting the notes and the vision of non-creative people, or at least non-creative TV people."
He also says that not everyone is cut out to run a show, Robert Kirkman for example "is an amazing visual artist and a graphic artist, [but] he knows very little about TV....he doesn't know how to run a show."
After Sutter's last rant about "The Walking Dead" on Dec. 24, Kirkman responded with the following tweet "@sutterink is brilliant and Sons is my favorite show on TV. Still, it's upsetting to see him ranting about things he knows nothing about."

As for "Sons Of Anarchy," Sutter previously discussed season 6 and the possibility of a season 7. The show returns to FX in September.
