WATCH: New Eclipse teaser for Guillermo del Toro’s The Strain

January 23rd, 2014 by Irwin Fletcher Comments

The series is based on the book series that Del Toro worked on with Chuck Hogan, and it should make for an awesome series. It’s a bioterror thriller that tells the story of an outbreak in the U.S. of a virus that either kills those who are exposed to it or turns them into vampires.

The tale 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. 

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

Del Toro will direct the pilot episode which airs in July.
