I’m looking forward to watching the upcoming FX show, The Strain. It’s created by Guillermo Del Toro, looks super creepy, stars Sean Astin, and will satiate me during the summer slump. The more I see from the show the more excited I get, and these two featurettes below only help us delve more into the making of the show and what to expect. Check them out!

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]
