The Strain

Following up on yesterday's news item, which brought us a new video teaser, we now have the first promo poster for FX's The Strain. With a pilot directed by Guillermo del Toro (the series is based on the books he penned with Chuck Hogan), this anticipated genre show arrives this summer.

The series tells the story of Dr. Ephraim Goodweather (Corey 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.

Corey Stoll, Maestro, Sean Astin, Kevin Durand, Natalie Brown, Jonathan Hyde, Richard Sammel, Robert Maillet, Jack Kesy, Ben Hyland, and Miguel Gomez also star.
