Katey Sagal’s producer hubby gets death threats –and now both fear they’re on the hit list of killer motorcycle gangs!

With her life on the line, Katey, who stars as hardboiled wife and mother of two motorcycle gang members in the FX series Sons of Anarchy has amped up her personal security, according to insiders.

"The show is so realistic that actual motorcycle gang members have been making threats against Katey and her husband. The mail and phone threats have got them frightened out of their wits!" revealed a source close to the couple.

Sons of Anarchy was created by Katey’s husband, writer-producer Kurt Sutter, who also developed the Emmy-winning FX crime drama The Shield.

"Security has been beefed up on the set, and Katey and Kurt have added additional security at their L.A. home as well," said the source.

Katey’s hubby Kurt Sutter told a reporter in a recent interview, "I’ve gotten my share of death threats.  Some people are not happy…The outlaw culture by nature is about not being put into a box."

Katey who’s best known for Married With Children and the voice of  one-eyed animated hottie Leela on Futurama is scared out of her wits.

"She’s never experienced anything like this and it’s completely unnerved her. She not only has her own welfare to think about, but also her husband and kids."

 "Because the series is so realistic, the real-life bad guys are feeling threatened by it," the sourcer divulged.
