ROBERT RODRIGUEZ’S HIGHLY-ANTICIPATED ORIGINAL

‘FROM DUSK TILL DAWN: THE SERIES’

PREMIERES TUESDAY, MARCH 11 AT 9 PM ET/PT ON EL REY NETWORK

Episode 101 Description
Written and Directed by Robert Rodriguez

When infamous bank robbers Seth and Richie Gecko make a run for the Mexican Border, a pit stop at a liquor store turns into a deadly standoff. During the siege, Richie becomes haunted by visions of demons – and a mysterious woman who beckons him from beyond.

Based on the cult-classic film of the same name, “From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series” is centered around bank robber Seth Gecko (D.J. Cotrona) and his violent, unpredictable brother, Richard “Richie” Gecko (Zane Holtz), who are wanted by the FBI and Texas Rangers Earl McGraw (Don Johnson) and Freddie Gonzalez (Jesse Garcia) after a bank heist leaves several people dead. While on the run to Mexico, Seth and Richie encounter former pastor Jacob Fuller (Robert Patrick) and his family, whom they take hostage. Using the family RV to cross the border, chaos ensues when the group detours to a strip club that is populated by vampires. They are forced to fight until dawn in order to get out alive. The series deepens the tone and expands the storyline of the film, adds new characters and backstories and explores the Mesoamerican mythology behind the creatures inside the club.

The international cast includes: D.J. Cotrona (Dear John, G.I. Joe: Retaliation); Zane Holtz (Holes, The Perks of Being a Wallflower); Jesse Garcia (Quinceañera, Sons of Anarchy); Eiza González (Lola: Érase Una Vez); Wilmer Valderrama (That ‘70s Show, To Whom It May Concern); Adrianne Palicki (Friday Night Lights, G.I. Joe: Retaliation); Jake Busey (Starship Troopers, Enemy of the State, Identity); Don Johnson (Django Unchained, Nash Bridges); Madison Davenport (Save Me, Shameless); Lane Garrison (Bonnie & Clyde, Prison Break); Robert Patrick (Terminator 2: Judgment Day, The X-Files); and Brandon Soo Hoo (Tropic Thunder, Ender’s Game, Incredible Crew).

The 10-episode, hour-long series will serve as El Rey Network’s first scripted original.
