Your heart begins beating tonight.
Premiering tonight on FX is the debut episode of “The Strain,” from Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan.
Below we have four new teasers for the series, which is absolutely fantastic – in a weird way. While all of the cast and crew push on how hard they aimed at building a series that takes place in the “real world,” I feel like “The Strain” is about as colorful and comic book-esque as del Toro could get; it feels straight out of Blade 2 or Pacific Rim.
Del Toro directs Episode 1.01, ‘Night Zero,’ airing July 13, 10:00 pm e/p.
“When a plane lands in New York City with everyone on board dead, Dr. Ephraim Goodweather, head of the CDC’s Canary Project, and his team are called upon to investigate. Harlem pawnbroker Abraham Setrakian races to the airport, convinced that what looks at first like a mysterious viral outbreak might be the beginning of something infinitely more sinister.”
“The Strain” stars Corey Stoll, Mia Maestro, Sean Astin, Roger Cross, Leslie Hope, Regina King, Robert Maillet, Lauren Lee Smith, Miguel Gomez, Kevin Durand, David Bradley, and Richard Sammel.
