About the Project
We teamed with FX to tease the second season of the thrilling family drama Tyrant with special spots highlighting the story Bassam “Barry” Al Fayeed, the younger son of a dictator who ends a 20 year self-imposed exile to come back to his troubled homeland in the Middle East. Barry is drawn into running the country with his brother after his father dies, leading to clashes with his American wife and his father’s regime. Adam Rayner returns in the leading role of Barry.

Did you know?
– Director Ang Lee was originally involved in the development of Tyrant but dropped out before production began.
– The idea for Tyrant came from series creator Gideon Raff, also known for Showtime’s Homeland. He was inspired by a news story about Syria’s President Bashar al-Assad who was educated in the West, married a British woman and accused of being a mass killer.
Tyrant has been filmed in several countries. The original pilot was filmed in Morocco. Production resumed in Tel Aviv only to be moved to Istanbul to avoid the ongoing violence in Israel. Season 2 is filmed in Hungary.
– Adam Rayner’s first paid acting job was understudying for Matt Damon in a western play.
