The full length trailer for Robert Rodriguez’ From Dusk Till Dawn TV series has now been released, and you will find the trailer (which is actually not too bad) below.
The 10 episode series is due to premiere in Q1 2014 which has been produced by El Rey’s network founder Robert Rodriguez. The supernatural crime saga (which is based on the cult classic film of the same name) will feature Robert Patrick (Terminator 2: Judgment Day, “The X-Files”) as Jacob Fuller, Madison Davenport (Save Me, “Shameless”) as Kate Fuller, Brandon Soo Hoo (Tropic Thunder, Ender’s Game) as Scott Fuller, and Eiza González (“Lola: Érase Una Vez”) as Santánico Pandemonium.
It will be the first original scripted series to air on the new genre-busting cable network. The El Rey Network will debut nationally in December 2013.
Eiza González recreates the role of Santánico Pandemonium, credited for launching Salma Hayek’s film career. Robert Patrick portrays Jacob Fuller, father to Kate Fuller (Davenport) and Scott Fuller (Soo Hoo), who are held hostage by main characters Seth and Richie Gecko and find themselves along for the ride of their life. They join previously announced D.J. Cotrona (Dear John, G.I. Joe: Retaliation), who plays Seth Gecko; Zane Holtz (Holes, The Perks of Being a Wallflower) as Richie Gecko; Jesse Garcia (Quinceañera, “Sons of Anarchy”), who plays Texas Ranger Freddie Gonzalez, a new character created for the series; and Don Johnson (Django Unchained, “Nash Bridges”) who joins in a recurring role as Sheriff Earl McGraw.
Based on the thrill-ride film, “From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series” is a supernatural crime saga centered around bank robber Seth Gecko (Cotrona) and his violent, unpredictable brother, Richard “Richie” Gecko (Holtz), who are wanted by the FBI and Texas Rangers Earl McGraw (Johnson) and Freddie Gonzalez (Garcia) after a bank heist left several people dead. While on the run to Mexico, Seth and Richie encounter former minister Jacob Fuller (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 of the film, adds new characters and backstories, and expands the Mesoamerican mythology behind the creatures inside the club.
