    Pretty much every pilot/series FX has in development sounds potentially awesome, so I'm excited for this. :up:

    Would've been cooler if the premise actually centered around an actual tyrant though. Well, not like a real life one, a fictional one but ya know, a dictator of some sort.

    I'm really curious to see what this will look like casting-wise, since The Strain has already got the ball rolling. Between that Homeland prestige the writer/producers have and the pilot being directed by a current Oscar winner, I'm thinking they'll field some pretty great actors.

    Well, ****... hopefully they find someone equally exciting to direct.

    Now that they've got a director, I'm surprised there's not one official castmember yet. The Strain pretty much has it's entire cast already set.

    In a piece The Hollywood Reporter did on Vince Gilligan, they said he was approached to direct the pilot after Ang Lee dropped out. :up:

    Only heard about this today, sounds promising. I'd like to know who might jump in to do the pilot, though if Ang Lee was interested enough by it, I'm sure it will draw a quality director. There's too many good shows on right now that I can't keep up with, why does FX have to start being so damn good too?! Later nights are in order i guess.

    Feels like ages but good news. I don't want to be this guy and making such a big deal but I was hoping they'd dare to cast a middle-eastern actor for the lead but he does seem beliveable as a middle-eastern so yeah.

    :up: to casting two good Swedish actors.

    Cool to see them say the exact same thing as I was about Homeland melodrama. Can't wait for this show

    I was bit worried they wouldn't move forward with the series when it was all quiet. But I'm glad it did because there's a lot of potential here. :up:

    They also showed a little bit of footage during one of the commercial breaks during Fargo, but I can't find it.
