As a show featuring an American family wedged in a tumultuous power struggle in the fictional Middle Eastern country of Abuddin, FX’s “Tyrant” looks and feels different from just about any other television drama today. With that distinctiveness comes a certain responsibility to accuracy and entertainment, which holds particular weight in today’s world.


21st Century Fox received a grand total of 103 Emmy Awards from the Television Academy today, which means there will be plenty of anticipation here when the winners are announced at the 68th Emmy Awards on Sunday, September 18.
