Mini Bio (1)
Raised in the shadow of Rahway prison, Sutter spent most of his New Jersey childhood indoors, away from people, three feet from a TV screen. That's where he learned the essentials of storytelling and the comic significance of anvils.
After graduating from Rutgers University with a BA in Film, Kurt spent several years as an actor in NYC, performing in off-off-Broadway theatres, lofts and holding cells. His theatre training led to teaching and directing and, in the mid-nineties, he joined the faculty of "The Gately-Poole Acting Studio" on Theatre Row, teaching the Sanford Meisner Technique and directing productions at "The Nat Horne Theatre".
In 1997, Kurt was awarded an MFA Fellowship to attend Northern Illinois University. In Chicago, Kurt's exposure to the dramatic masters - August Strindberg, Eugene O'Neill, Jean Genet - inspired him, and he began writing plays and cultivating ideas for the screen. After graduating with a Master of Fine Arts, Sutter moved to Los Angeles, where he began writing. In 2001, he landed a gig on FX's The Shield (2002). Starting as a staff writer, he stayed on "The Shield" its entire seven season run, finishing up the last two seasons as Executive Producer.
Kurt continues his relationship with FX, with his new critically-acclaimed series, Sons of Anarchy (2008). Along with his TV work, Sutter has feature projects in development at Warner Brothers and Paramount.
Sutter and his wife, actor/singer Katey Sagal, live in Los Angeles with their three children: Sarah, Jackson and Esmé. And their three dogs: Lola, Lumpy and Blue.

Personal Quotes (2)
[on Sons of Anarchy (2008)] I'd like to think that, when we're pushing the envelope, it's never gratuitous. Ultimately, the world this story takes place in, the subculture, is really background for what I like to think of as a family drama. It's a love story between a man and his wife. To make characters like the 'Sons' palatable for an audience, you have to stress those elements of brotherhood and family and love.
I met a group of guys from that world at a rally about a month and a half ago, and they said an interesting thing: that this show has ultimately become a good PR vehicle for outlaw clubs, from acceptance from the general public all the way to law enforcement. I don't know if that's a good thing or a bad thing. But I was glad.
