‘Dusk Till Dawn’ TV Series Coming From Robert Rodriguez?

From Dusk Till Dawn TV Series Robert Rodriguez

Amid the flurry of movie and TV adaptations being announced for Upfront week, here comes one we certainly weren’t expecting. Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino‘s vampire classic ‘From Dusk Till Dawn’ will birth a TV adaptation to be featured on Rodriguez’s upcoming “El Rey” network, which will also feature a new series from ‘Star Trek‘ writers Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman. Find out all about the new venture inside!

The 1996 cult classic ‘From Dusk Till Dawn’ has created a number of follow-ups in its wake, but the latest could prove the most intriguing yet. Via Deadline, we’ve learned that Rodriguez will spearhead a TV adaptation of the Salma Hayek/George Clooney/Danny Trejo-starring film franchise for his new El Rey network, simplified to a shorter title of ‘Dusk Till Dawn.’ Written, produced and directed by Rodriguez, the new series will explore the characters and story from the original film, providing a wider scope and richer Aztec mythology.

As previously mentioned, a new series is also on deck from writers Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman, the same pair bringing us this fall’s ‘Sleepy Hollow.’ Said the network’s Vice Chairman Scott Sassa of the venture, “Robert, Alex and Roberto exemplify the types of show creators that will ultimately set El Rey Network apart. We are honored to pave the way for their unprecedented debut into cable.”

“I’m thrilled to be partnering with Univision on this groundbreaking initiative to deliver high-quality original programming to our community and the wider, mainstream audiences,” said Rodriguez. “El Rey Network will serve as a launching pad to satisfy the tastes of young adults looking for exciting, cinematic, action-packed content. As a broadcast leader in media, Univision is the best partner to support us in achieving this vision.”

Interesting enough, but what say you? Would you want to see a new ‘Dusk Till Dawn’ TV series under Robert Rodriguez’s leadership?
