Kurt Sutter

Born in the shadow of Rahway Prison, Kurt Sutter was raised in the indoor/outdoor splendor of the New Jersey suburbs. He honed his storytelling skills at an early age by learning how to tell complex and elaborate lies. None of which ever eased the pain of being a slim-minded kid in a "huskyboy" body. After graduating from Rutgers University with a BA in Film, Kurt spent six years as an actor in NYC, performing in various off off-Broadway theatres, lofts, rooftops and holding cells. He moved to Los Angeles in the early 90s where he began teaching and directing.

That focus eventually brought Sutter back to New York City where he joined the faculty of The Gately-Poole Acting Studio on Theatre Row, teaching the Meisner Technique and directing productions at The Nat Horne Theatre. In 1995, Kurt was awarded an MFA Fellowship to attend Northern Illinois University. In Chicago, Kurt's exposure to the dramatic masters - Strindberg, O'Neill, Genet - inspired him, and he began writing plays and cultivating ideas for the screen. After graduating with a Master of Fine Arts, Sutter moved back to Los Angeles where he wrote his first screenplay, "Delivering Gen". "Gen" garnered industry kudos, got him an agent and sold in 2000. In 2001, the countless, unmonitored hours spent in front of the TV as a child paid off, when Kurt landed a writing gig on FX's, "The Shield". Sutter is currently in his fifth season as a writer and Co-Executive Producer on the Emmy and Golden Globe award-winning television show.

Along with his work on "The Shield", Kurt has a two-picture feature deal at Warner Brothers. His first script, "In-Crime", is a gritty drama about LAPD's controversial SIS unit. "Training Day" director, Antoine Fuqua and Lorenzo DiBonaventura are producing. Kurt recently married actor/singer Katey Sagal and now faces his most terrifying challenge to date... fatherhood.
