Fans of Robert Rodriguez’s vampire/western cult hit “From Dusk Till Dawn” are no doubt curious to see how the film translates to TV, and El Rey Network knows how to whet their appetites.
The network has released five character posters for the Gecko Brothers (D.J. Cotrona and Zane Holtz), Satanico Pandemonium (Eiza Gonzalez), Carlos Madrigal (Wilmer Valderrama), the Fuller family (Robert Patrick Madison Davenport, Brandon Soo Hoo) and the Texas Rangers (Don Johnson and Jesse Garcia).
The series will adapt the film’s story of the Gecko brothers, who kidnap the wholesome Fuller family while on the run for a deadly bank robbery and cross the Mexican border in the family’s RV. The group holes up in a strip club only to find out that it’s run by vampires, and must fight until the sun shines again in order to survive.
“From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series” is the first scripted original by El Rey, the network started by Robert Rodriguez. The pilot will premiere at SXSW on Saturday, March 8th, and will premiere on El Rey Network Tuesday, March 11th at 9pm ET/PT.
