Jamal (Ashraf Barhom) seeks the help of Ziad (Amir Boutrous) in finding the traitors trying to overthrow him in our exclusive clip from Tyrant: The Complete First Season, which is currently available on DVD from Fox Home Entertainment. We reported in September that FX has renewed Tyrant for Season 2, with the 13-episode season slated to debut sometime this summer. If you haven't caught up with this riveting drama from the producers of Homeland quite yet, you have plenty of time to watch Season 1 on DVD before the new episodes debut.
The series centers on Barry Al-Fayeed (Adam Rayner), whose western views are pitted against his brother Jamal's wife, Leila (Moran Atias), who wants her husband to rule with an iron fist. As a national political crisis threatens to explode, Barry finds himself torn between the seductive lure of absolute power and sympathy for his country's courageous freedom fighters. Jennifer Finnigan, Noah Silver, Anne Winters, Alice Krige, Fares Fares, Salim Dau and Mehdi Dehbi also star in the series, created by Gideon Raff.
The special features on Tyrant: The Complete First Season include A Family of Tyranny, an in-depth look at key family members and the pivotal roles they play in the epic drama, along with deleted scenes. Check out this exclusive clip before delving into the intense world of FX's Tyrant before picking up the DVD set.
