El Rey Network, director Robert Rodriguez’s new cable network set to debut this December, announced the production start of From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series, the first scripted original to air on his new station based on his cult classic film. The supernatural crime saga will be an hour-long scripted series and will premiere on El Rey Network at the beginning of 2014 with Rodriguez set to direct the first two installments.
The 10-episode serialized drama, created, directed and executive produced by Rodriguez will feature a principal cast including D.J. Cotrona (Dear John, G.I. Joe: Retaliation) as Seth Gecko, Zane Holtz (Holes, The Perks of Being a Wallflower) stars as Richie Gecko, Jesse Garcia (Quinceañera, Sons of Anarchy) plays Texas Ranger Freddie Gonzalez, and Don Johnson (Django Unchained, Nash Bridges) joins in a recurring role as Sheriff Earl McGraw.
Rodriguez said of the series,“If the movie’s the short story, the series is the novel. We have assembled an amazing cast and crew, and viewers can expect to be part of a wild ride when the series premieres on El Rey Network next spring.” Rodriguez is joined in the Executive Producer ranks by Carlos Coto (who is also showrunner); and FactoryMade Ventures and El Rey Network co-founders John Fogelman and Cristina Patwa. From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series is an El Rey Network production in association with FactoryMade Ventures. Consider us here at Morbidly Amusing officially intrigued.
