Kurt Sutter is the host of Discovery Channel's reality series "Kurt Sutter's Outlaw Empires." He is also the creator of FX's critically-acclaimed drama series "Sons of Anarchy."

Raised in the suburbs of Central New Jersey, Kurt Sutter spent most of his childhood indoors, away from people, three feet from a TV screen. That's where he learned the essentials of storytelling and that extreme violence, if performed by animated, brightly-colored characters, could be fun and educational.

After graduating from Rutgers University with a B.A. in Film, Sutter spent several years as an actor in New York City, performing in off off-Broadway theaters, lofts and NYPD holding cells. His theater training led to teaching and directing and in the mid-90s 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 — 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 to Los Angeles where he began writing. In 2001, he landed a gig on FX's "The Shield." Starting as a staff writer on the first episode, he stayed on "The Shield" until the last episode, finishing up the last two seasons as an executive producer.

Along with his TV work, Sutter has feature projects in development at DreamWorks, Warner Bros. and Paramount Studios. His script, "Southpaw," starring Eminem, is looking to begin shooting in 2012.

Sutter and his wife, Katey Sagal, live in Los Angeles with their three children: Sarah, Jackson and Esme.
