FX has a pretty good-looking summer programming slate lined up for the coming months, but the network is clearly banking on its newest drama The Strain becoming its next big thing after last summer's The Bridge straddled the border between greatness and crazypants. Based on a trilogy of books by Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan, the del Toro-created Strain centers on a viral outbreak in New York City that looks a hell of a lot like vampirism.
The folks over in the FX promotional department must be working overtime, because the network has released five new teasers ahead of the series' July 13 premiere. There's not much to them, but I think we may have found that jar of hearts Christina Perri was so upset about about a few summers ago. And while I'm not sure any of these new clips can top the recent one that presumably features a pimp throwing candy into the street, they're still delightfully disturbing and worth checking out...
