The well-pedigreed, high-concept thriller is directed by Guillermo del Toro (the Hellboy films, Pan’s Labyrinth), who also co-wrote the script with Chuck Hogan (The Town), and exec-produced by Carlton Cuse (Lost, Bates Motel).

Stoll will star as Dr. Ephraim Goodweather, the head of a Center for Disease Control team in New York City that is tasked with investigating a mysterious viral outbreak with the hallmarks of an ancient, evil strain of vampirism. A war for the fate of humanity develops as the epidemic spreads.

Hogan and del Toro co-authored the books on which The Strain is based. Cuse will serve as showrunner if the pilot is ordered to series.
