Robert Rodriguez Releases First Full Trailer for 'From Dusk Till Dawn' Series (Video)
Robert Rodriguez's El Rey Network on Thursday released the first official trailer from its upcoming supernatural crime saga From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series.
The 10-episode drama, based on the 1996 movie of the same name, revolves 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.
Madison Davenport, Brandon Soo Hoo, Eiza González and Wilmer Valderrama also star.
The El Rey Network, which launched in December, is a new 24-hour English-language network targeting a Latino audience. Founded by Rodriguez, the network has a national distribution agreement with Comcast. From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series, debuting at 9 p.m. on March 11, marks the network's first original scripted effort. Watch the trailer below.
