Drama 'The Abandons' Created by Kurt Sutter Lands Series Order at Netflix

Netflix has today given a series order to the original drama series The Abandons created by Kurt Sutter (Sons of Anarchy, Mayans M.C.). The first season will produce 10 episodes.

The drama will follow a group of diverse, outlier families pursuing their Manifest Destiny in 1850s Oregon when a corrupt force of wealth and power, coveting their land, tries to force them out.

These abandoned souls, the kind of lost souls living on the fringe of society, unite their tribes to form a family and fight back. In this bloody process, "justice" is stretched beyond the boundaries of the law. The series will explore that fine line between survival and law, the consequences of violence, and the corrosive power of secrets, as this family fights to keep their land.

Sutter will serve as showrunner and executive producer. SutterInk will produce in association with Netflix.
