FX Network has partnered up with the ATX Television Festival in Austin, Texas, for a special closing-night program that will feature the world premiere of the pilot for the upcoming drama The Strain and an unaired episode of the limited series Fargo, and EW has some of the amazing Mondo posters that will be shown at Saturday’s event.
The Strain, from Guillermo del Toro, author Chuck Hogan, and writer/producer Carlton Cuse, is based on del Toro and Hogan’s best-selling vampire novel trilogy of the same name. The series, starring Corey Stoll, Mia Maestro, Sean Astin, and Kevin Durand, will premiere Sunday, July 13, on FX. Fargo, Noah Hawley’s 10-episode series based in part on the Coen brothers’ Oscar-winning film, premiered back in April and stars Billy Bob Thornton, Martin Freeman, and Kate Walsh. The festival will screen episode 9, which premieres next Tuesday on FX.
