'Tyrant': First Look At 'Homeland' EPs New Drama

FX has shared a first look at its brand new drama from “Homeland” Executive Producers Howard Gordon and Gideon Raff.

In the series, Barry Al-Fayeed (played by British actor Adam Rayner) is the second son of the leader of a fictional Middle Eastern country. Barry has spent the last two decades in the USA on a self-imposed exile.

A family wedding is the impetus for Barry and his very American family – wife Molly (Jennnifer Finnigan), son Sammy (Noah Silver) and daughter Emma (Anne Winters) — to fly over. And, quickly, Barry’s stateside family starts to get to know the place he comes from, which is full of political unrest, the relatives he left behind (including his controversial dictator father), and the past he’s kept to himself.

The suspenseful new series premieres Tuesday, June 24 at 10 PM ET/PT on FX.
