Hot off the heels of releasing the first full length trailer of “From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series”, El Rey Network is unveiling two new images from the Austin, TX set featuring Wilmer Valderrama (“That ’70s Show,” “To Whom It May Concern”) as enigmatic crime lord Carlos, and Eiza González (“Lola: Érase Una Vez”) who recreates the role of Santánico Pandemonium, credited for launching Salma Hayek’s film career.
The network’s first scripted original on Robert Rodriguez’s new genre-busting cable network, “From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series” is based on the thrill-ride film of the same name.
The 10-episode serialized drama is centered around bank robber, Seth Gecko and his violent, unpredictable brother, Richard “Richie” Gecko, who are wanted by the FBI and Texas Rangers Earl McGraw and Freddie Gonzalez after a bank heist left several people dead. While on the run to Mexico, Seth and Richie encounter former pastor Jacob Fuller 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.
“From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series” will premiere on El Rey Network, Tuesday, March 11that 9pm ET/PT.
