From Emmy® and Golden Globe® Award-winning Executive Producer/Showunner Howard Gordon (24Homeland), Tyrant tells the story of an unassuming American family drawn into the workings of a turbulent Middle Eastern nation. Bassam “Barry” Al Fayeed, the younger son of the dictator of a war-torn nation, 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. The cast includes 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.

Wilfred is a half-hour, live-action comedy about “Ryan,” a young man struggling to make his way in the world until he forms a unique friendship with “Wilfred,” his neighbor’s canine pet. Everyone else sees Wilfred as just a dog, but Ryan sees a crude and somewhat surly, yet irrepressibly brave and honest Australian bloke in a cheap dog suit. Executive Producers are David Zuckerman, Reed Agnew, Eli Jorné, Jason Gann, Rich Frank and Jeff Kwatinetz of Prospect Park, Randall Einhorn, and Joe Connor and Ken Connor of Renegade.Elijah Wood stars as “Ryan” and Jason Gann plays the title character “Wilfred.” Series regulars also include Fiona Gubelmann and Dorian Brown.

The Bridge

Season two of 2014 Peabody Award-winning drama The Bridge will premiere Wednesday, July 9 at 10 PM ET/PT. The Bridge is a crime thriller starring Diane Kruger, Demian Bichir, Annabeth Gish, Thomas M. Wright, Matthew Lillard, Emily Rios and Ted Levine. When the body of a cartel member is found on US soil, Sonya Cross (Diane Kruger) from El Paso PD and her Mexican counterpart, Marco Ruiz (Demian Bichir), must work together to solve the case.  In Season 2, Marco, reeling from the death of his son, is still dealing with corrupt cops and the demands of the cartel.  Sonya meets an unexpected man with connections to her past who threatens to come between her and her boss, Lieutenant Hank Wade (Ted Levine).  The case quickly pulls them all into a complex web of money laundering, police corruption, and the Juarez Drug War which infiltrates the suburban streets of El Paso. El Paso Times reporters Daniel Frye (Matthew Lillard) and Adriana Mendez (Emily Rios) continue to follow the Millie Quintana Money House, a path that will eventually cross that of Marco and Sonya. Charlotte Millwright (Annabeth Gish) will have to make the impossible choice between the two worlds that have a grasp on her: the US government and the Mexican cartel.  Meanwhile, Steven Linder (Thomas M. Wright) tries to do right by his Mexican Immigrant love and ends up seeking justice the only way he knows how. Executive Producers are Meredith Stiehm (Homeland) and novelist and television writer/producer Elwood Reid, as well as Shine America’s Carolyn G. Bernstein and Filmlance’s Lars Blomgren. It is distributed by Shine International. FX will air 13 episodes of The Bridge for Season 2 on Wednesday nights at 10 PM ET/PT.

Married

New comedy series Married premieres Thursday, July 17 at 10 PM ET/PT. Married is a half hour comedy about being miserably in love. Russ (Nat Faxon) and Lina Bowman (Judy Greer) can barely remember what life was like before kids, debt, and suburbia rained on their romance — but every once in a while, in between the arguments about their declining sex life and who’s driving carpool, they are reminded what drew them together in the first place — they’re best friends. Married was created by Andrew Gurland (The Virginity Hit, Mail Order Wife), who wrote and directed the pilot script and serves as Executive Producer/Showrunner, alongside Executive Producers Paul Young and Peter Principato. The series is produced by FX Productions. FX has ordered 10 episodes of Married for its first season to air Thursday nights at 10 PM ET/PT.
