WATCH: FX Releases 'Tyrant' Teaser, Announces 'The Strain' World Premiere


FX has released a first look at their forthcoming drama ‘Tyrant,’ and to call it a “teaser” would be to use the term very generously.

While what we see it in fact beautiful, it’s brief and mighty strange. A bearded Adam Rayner stands alone in a desert wearing a well-tailored suit picking up a fistful of sand only to let it fall away.

That’s about it, save for the eerily orange tinge to the expanse and the piercing blue of Raynor’s eyes. There is some ominous music but not much else. Appetite whetted, I suppose.

‘Tyrant’ follows an unassuming American family, led by patriarch Barry (Rayner), as they are drawn into the workings of a turbulent and chaotic Middle East nation. The drama comes from Howard Gordon and Gideon Raff. The series also stars Jennifer Finnigan, Anne Winters, Ashraf Barhom and Justin Kirk.

In other FX news, another anticipated drama, ‘The Strain’ from Guillermo del Toro, will get its world premiere at the ATX Television Festival in Austin, Texas, on the weekend of June 5, Entertainment Weekly reports. The supernatural series will close out the festival on the final night.

Based on the best-selling vampire trilogy written by del Toro and Chuck Hogan, ‘The Strain’ is written and produced by ‘Lost’ alum Carlton Cuse.

The festival will also air the eighth episode of the FX limited series ‘Fargo,’ which debuts tonight.

Loora, I guess you don't read. Some books, movies, tv series, hang the HOPE they will get better. Or at least end well. The only way one can get to the ending is by READING the ENTIRE book, or watching the ENTIRE film or tv series. If I invest x hours reading a book I intend to finish it. Finish what you start is always the best advice. When it all goes to crap ONLY the author is to blame. I spent the money, took the time to finish the entire series, I have EARNED the right to be a critic. Loora, find an adult learning program which will teach you how to read at the collegiate level. Then pick up a book and put forth the effort to not only stumble through it but understand what is being said and suggested. Your world will become richer when you have the skills reading offers.

Why did you finish it if it was so bad ? Seems fairly moronic to me to - after realizing it's "crap" - finish it anyway wasting your valuable time. So there must be something that kept you reading, no ?

The Strain books sucked BIG TIME! Idiotic ending and, when finally revealed, premise. They owe me a large amount of money based on how much of my life I wasted reading that crap.
