I remember when it got hot in New York city and the only thing you needed to worry about was bird flus and other pandemics. Nowadays you gotta worry about things like turning into a vampire on top of the normal heat wave. That’s the basis of Guillermo Del Toro’s and Carlon Cuse‘s, ‘The Strain.’

The horror television series will be heading to FX and today we have some new teasers and a poster from the show. You don’t get a good sense of what the show is about, other than it’s aiming to be pretty creepy. Check them out below!

Here’s the synopsis.

[box_light]“‘The Strain’ is a high concept thriller that 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.”[/box_light]

The Strain will likely debut in July 2014.
