Another horror TV project in the works for later this year is the adaptation of Guillermo Del Toro’s and Chuck Hogan’s hybrid vampire tale THE STRAIN.
Corey Stoll, Mia Maestro, Sean Astin, Kevin Durand, Jonathan Hyde, Richard Sammel, Robert Maillet, Jack Kesy, Ben Hyland, Miguel Gomezand, Natalie Brown,David Bradley, Regina King, and Jim Watson all lend their talents to the show which is said to be heading our way in July. Tonight a couple of stills from the production made their way on line and I thought you might want to have a little peek, so peek away.
Here’s the official synopsis from FX:
The Strain is a high-concept thriller that tells the story of Dr. Ephraim Goodweather (Stoll), the head of the Center for Disease Control Canary Team in New York City. He and his team are called upon to investigate a mysterious viral outbreak with hallmarks of an ancient and evil strain of vampirism. As the strain spreads, Eph, his team, and an assembly of everyday New Yorkers wage war for the fate of humanity itself.
