FOX UK has released the first trailer for their new US import Tyrant.
The series, which is set to premiere on Friday September 12th at 9pm, tells the story of Bassam “Barry” Al Fayeed, the younger son of the dictator of a war-torn nation, who ends a self-imposed 20-year exile to return to his homeland, accompanied by his American wife and children, for his nephew’s wedding. Barry’s reluctant homecoming leads to a dramatic clash of cultures as he is thrown back into the familial and national politics of his youth.
Tyrant was created by Gideon Raff & Howard Gordon and is produced by Fox 21 and FX Productions, with Howard Gordon, Gideon Raff, Michael Lehmann, Avi Nir, Hugh Fitzpatrick and Craig Wright executive producing. The geopolitical drama stars Adam Rayner, Jennifer Finnigan, Ashraf Barhom, Moran Atias, Noah Silver, Anne Winters, Fares Fares, Salim Daw, Justin Kirk, Jordana Spiro, Mehdi Dehbi and Alice Krige. FX has yet to make a decision on the future of the show.
