"From Dusk Till Dawn" The TV Series
Development continues on director Robert Rodriguez "From Dusk Till Dawn" 'vampire' TV series for the "El Rey Network", a new general entertainment, English-language cable network geared towards young-adult audiences, launching December 2013 with distribution through Comcast.
As lead curators of content for El Rey Network, Rodriguez and the FactoryMade company "...will cultivate a mix of reality, scripted and animated series, movies, music and sports programming, providing English-language programming and 'action content' that boldly features, or is created, produced or directed by, high-caliber talent, celebrities and public figures..."
"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."
Based on the action/horror feature film franchise from Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino, "From Dusk Till Dawn," the TV series will be written, produced and directed by Rodriguez "...providing a wider scope and richer Aztec mythology..."
The scripted show is being developed as a part of the network’s co-financing pact with Reliance-backed television studio Georgeville Television and will be produced in Austin, Texas, home of Rodriguez’ 26-acre studio facilities. Georgeville, founded by Motion Picture Capital and Reliance, will be co-producing scripted programming for El Rey in a $250 million deal announced two months ago.
