‘Sons of Anarchy’ creator Kurt Sutter to fans: ‘We will come baring gifts, good cheer and basically disrupt your neighborhood’
The highly anticipated season six premiere of Sons of Anarchy will air on FX on September 10th at 10pm. Show creator and actor Kurt Sutter (who we interviewed in December) has already begun riling up his passionate fan base to make sure ratings increase like they did last year. Since season four he’s been personally running a successful and simple social media competition that rewards a fan on social media if they increase their ratings. The often controversial show runner just sent out the following to subscribers of his Blogger blog.
SEASON 6 VIEWERSHIP CHALLENGE
Posted: 30 Aug 2013 12:39 PM PDTHey Kids, as a reminder –If we increase our SONS OF ANARCHY season 6 premier numbers by any percentage in the key demos, myself and some unwilling cast member will show up in your home town and take over your favorite bar, club or theatre and watch a season 6 Son’s episode with you, your friends and your highly dysfunctional family.(It will most likely be episode 610, 611 or 612. We can’t do the the finale because we are doing SOA AFTERWORD that night.)We will come baring gifts, good cheer and basically disrupt your neighborhood and piss off all your neighbors. Fuck those neighbors, I hate those shitheads anyhow. With their stupid fucking non-permitted construction and their ugly faux stone wall and their ridiculous fucking purple pool… (sorry, I’m working out some local shit)My plan is to tape the whole event for some awesome Season 6 DVD bonus material.The winner will be chosen at random from social media. Anyone following my Twitter @sutterink or my Sutterink Facecock page will be eligible. Sorry, international fans, this one is limited to residents of these United States.So please spread the word.Sons of Anarchy Season 6 premier
