From the Austin theater, Alamo Drafthouse founder and CEO Tim League will host a Q&A with Rodriguez and the cast following the premiere, which will be simultaneously streaming to all eight of the other Alamo theaters and on the El Rey Network YouTube channel. The 30-minute Q&A will begin at 10 p.m. ET/9 p.m. CT.

There also will be a special Alamo Drafthouse menu (available at all the theaters participating in the event) celebrating one of Rodriguez's iconic symbols used in his movies and the new TV series that includes the Big Kahuna Burger.

Rodriguez created and executive produced the 10-episode, hourlong series, which will be El Rey Network's first scripted original. (The network itself was set up by Rodriguez.)

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, the brothers detour to a strip club populated by vampires, and chaos ensues. Wilmer Valderrama, Adrianne Palicki and Jake Busey also star.

"Robert's been such an inspiration to so many young filmmakers to make movies on their own terms," says Tim League. "I am proud to be able to support Robert as he now takes on television with his same indefatigable DIY spirit."
