Diva. Clown. Killer. is Sutter's latest project for the cable network, where his biker drama Sons also airs.
The script - a dark comedy - follows three central characters; an '80s rock diva, her son who works as a clown, and an assassin, according to TVLine.
Sutter is said to be interested in casting his wife - actress Katey Sagal - in the pilot. Sagal currently stars in Sons of Anarchy and it is unclear how this new project might affect her commitment to her current show.
"I look at [Sons of Anarchy] as being an intense drama, where the murder and mayhem are made palatable by absurd, dark humour," said Sutter. "This half-hour will be an absurd, dark comedy, where the story is fuelled by murder and mayhem."
Sons of Anarchy will return for its fifth season on Tuesday, September 11 at 10/9c in the US, with a sixth season already commissioned.
