He Is Here

Guillermo del Toro's The Strain has taken the long path to this moment. Conceived as a TV series, it was roundly rejected by every network, forcing del Toro (who never gives up on a good story, it seems) to adapt his idea into a trilogy of novels with Chuck Hogan. The books were successful enough (and because everyone else really wants their own Walking Dead) that interest in adapting it back into a TV series grew, eventually settling at FX (which I still hold is the best of the American cable networks). FX ordered a pilot, starring Corey Stoll and past del Toro collaborator John Hurt, which they recently ordered to series, though with David Bradley replacing Hurt for the ongoing run.

Despite the fact that the series was just ordered, and it still probably a year away from broadcast, FX has already begun the marketing push for the series, with this short found footage and completely unattributed snippet hinting at the influence of the Master.

About MR. Clark

Adopting the descriptor of "successfully unpublished author", MR. Clark began writing things on the internet in 2012, which he believed to be an entirely reputable and civilized place to find and deliver information. He regrets much.
