FX president John Landgraf made the announcement at FX’s upfront presentation in New York this morning. Season 5 of the award-winning drama Justified will debut in January 2014. Additionally, Landgraf showcased high-profile drama pilots Tyrant, which recently tapped Oscar winner Ang Lee as director, and The Strain, based on Guillermo del Toro’s books, which he said “will reinvent the vampire horror genre.” Both have full writing staffs in place and are working on first-season scripts in anticipation of series pickups. Tyrant hails from Howard Gordon, Gideon Raff & Craig Wright; Strain from del Toro and Carlton Cuse.
