Robert Rodriguez’s 1996 film “From Dusk till Dawn,” written by Quentin Tarantino and starring George Clooney, was a modest box office success and received mixed reviews upon release, but twenty years later, its legacy has endured. The film has become a cult favorite and has produced two direct-to-DVD sequels, a third-person shooter video game, and now a horror TV series on Rodriguez’s television network El Rey. Currently in its third season, “From Dusk till Dawn: The Series” reimagines the story of the film and follows the supernatural adventures of Seth and Richie Gecko (D. J. Cotrona and Zane Holtz). Watch a behind-the-scenes video below that examines the evolution of some of the biggest fight scenes this season.
Rodriguez developed and executive produced the series. He first came to prominence in 1992 with his independent film “El Mariachi,” and then later achieved success with “Desperado,” the “Spy Kids” series, “Once Upon a Time In Mexico,” “Sin City,” and “Planet Terror,” one-half of the “Grindhouse” collaboration between him and Quentin Tarantino. Rodriguez also created and hosted the talk show “The Director’s Chair” which featured conversations between him and famous directors, like John Carpenter, George Miller, Michael Man, Francis Ford Coppola, and more.
“From Dusk till Dawn: The Series” airs every Tuesday night at 9pm ET on the El Rey Network. The first two seasons are available to stream on Netflix.
