Ex-Hells Angel:

'Sons of Anarchy' Was

MY Idea!

6/15/2010 8:25 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

A motorcycle war has broken out over the hit FX show "Sons of Anarchy" -- because the former NYC chapter head of the "Hells Angels" claims the network jacked his idea and screwed him out of millions.

TMZ has obtained a lawsuit filed by Chuck Zito -- in which the bike gang member-turned-actor claims he developed an idea for a show about an "outlaw motorcycle club" back in 1998 and pitched it to FX in 2004.

In the docs, Zito claims he entered into an "implied-in-fact contract" with FX which guaranteed if they used his ideas for a TV show, Zito would be "reasonably compensated and afforded appropriate screen credits." Zito claims FX eventually passed on the project.

So when FX began developing "Sons of Anarchy" in 2006 -- Zito was pissed ... claiming "Sons" was "substantially similar" to his motorcycle show idea.

Now, Zito claims FX is obligated to pay him more than $5,000,000 for breaking the "implied-in-fact" contract.

FX had no comment on the lawsuit.

I see how the hells angels all chicken out online. I remember when a hells angels would type HAMC after his name next to his comment thinking no one would dare type back.



I guess a lot of hells angels have got their ass kicked talking back and now learned how to act like the out of shape gang cowards The God of the hells angels always said the US hells angels were.



After reading all the stories about what hells angels do to women and children all over the USA I don't know how men can be allowed to support hells angels legally .



It seems supporting hells angels is helping the hells angels to war against women and children all over the USA

read about the large percent of US hells angels harming raping molesting and murdering women and children all over the USA.



I think every normal person in the USA is a rival to USA hells angels known for the large percent of members that harm rape molest and murder women and children all over the USA.



I think every hells angels and the men that date hells angels should be dead or in prison far away from women and children.



Its strange how when the hells angels commit these crimes they are not all charged with federal charges and hate crimes.



I guess the ATF FBI all the alphabet and local and state police think what ever info the HA feed them about the ha supporters is worth the trade off?



I don't think the feds should target all hells angel so called rivals all over the USA. The federal government is allowing the freaks of the hells angels to recruit all the punks left in the small coward motorcycle clubs to support what seems to be the hells angels all out war against American women and children here in the USA on our own American soil . We have coward punk bikers running around like bitches supporting hells angels because they are to scared to ride as an independent or get locked up for some BS federal charge because its seems like the fed is trying to clear way for the **** hells angel.



I think the type of crimes hells angels are known to commit against women and children all over the USA are the worse type of crimes facing this country.

The problem with men that date hells angels is they won't look at the truth because they cannot see past the fat angel they are kneeling in front of.



I have never saw a gang in the USA with A LARGER PERCENT of members that collect child porn or harm rape molest and murder women and children all over the USA then the USa hells angels .
