‘Tyrant’ Episode Guide (Aug. 12): Barry Plans to Remove His Brother from Office

“Meet the New Boss” (08/12/14) – Fed up with Jamal’s unpredictable and violent nature, Barry conspires to start a coup and remove his brother from office; while at the same time Jamal is so moved by Barry’s willingness to do the unthinkable and hasten Sheik Rashid’s demise, that he stops at nothing to prove his worth to his brother.

This episode was written by avid Matthews and directed by Charlotte Sieling.

From Emmy and Golden Globe Award-winning Executive Producer/Showunner Howard Gordon (“24,” “Homeland”), FX’s “Tyrant” tells the story of an unassuming American family drawn into the workings of a turbulent Middle Eastern nation. Bassam “Barry” Al Fayeed, the younger son of the dictator of a war-torn nation, ends a self-imposed 20-year exile to return to his homeland, accompanied by his American wife and children, for his nephew’s wedding.

Barry’s reluctant homecoming leads to a dramatic clash of cultures as he is thrown back into the familial and national politics of his youth. The cast includes Adam Rayner, Jennifer Finnigan, Ashraf Barhom, Moran Atias, Noah Silver, Anne Winters, Fares Fares, Salim Daw, Justin Kirk, Jordana Spiro, Mehdi Dehbi, and Alice Krige. Howard Gordon, Craig Wright, Glenn Gordon Caron, Gideon Raff, David Yates, Michael Lehmann, Peter Noah, and Avi Nir are Executive Producers.

“Tyrant” was created by Gideon Raff and it is produced by Fox 21 and FX Productions. FX has ordered 10 episodes of “Tyrant” for its first season which airs Tuesday nights at 10 PM ET/PT.
