TORONTO (May 22, 2014) Canadians will be Married to their screens this summer when a Strain of the season’s hottest new dramas and comedies, along with fan-favourite returning hits, infiltrate the summer lineup on FX Canada and FXX, beginning Tuesday, June 24.
 
 
FX Canada
 
FX Canada delivers suspenseful, nail-biting dramas this summer with the premiere of two epic new series –Tyrant and The Strain. Boasting the pedigree of Emmy® and Golden Globe® award-winning producers Howard Gordon and Gideon Raff (Homeland), and Emmy®-nominated writer/producer Craig Wright (Six Feet Under, Lost), Tyrant tells the story of an unassuming American family drawn into the workings of a turbulent Middle Eastern nation.
 
Also sinking its teeth into the summer lineup is new series The Strain, based on the best-selling vampire novel trilogy from Oscar® nominee Guillermo del Toro and author Chuck Hogan. This gory and gripping series tells the story of Dr. Ephraim Goodweather (Corey Stoll, House of Cards), 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.
 
Joining these compelling series on FX Canada this summer is Season 2 of the riveting crime-drama The Bridge, along with all-new episodes of Louie.
 
FXX
 
This summer, FX Canada’s “younger brother” FXX welcomes two new comedies – Married and You’re the Worst. Married centres on the marriage of Russ (Nat Faxon) and Lina (Judy Greer), a couple who can barely remember what life was like before kids, debt, and suburbia rained on their romance. Every once in a while, in between arguments about their declining sex life and who’s driving carpool, the couple are reminded of what drew them together in the first place – their friendship.
 
From creator/executive producer/showrunner Stephen Falk (Weeds), You’re the Worst is a comedic love story about what happens when two toxic, self-destructive people Gretchen (Aya Cash, Wolf of Wallstreet) and Jimmy (Chris Geere, Band of Brothers) fall in love despite themselves, and attempt the impossible – a relationship.
 
Married and You’re the Worst join the roster of hit shows currently airing on FXX, including critically acclaimed series Fargo, Ali G: Rezurection, and Eastbound & Down.
