In 1996, Robert Rodriguez’s FROM DUSK TILL DAWN hit theaters across America. The film starred George Clooney and Quentin Tarantino as the Gecko brothers, a criminal duo known for their trail of thievery and bodies. Their next partner in crime orders the brothers to meet him at a bar that opens at sunset and stays open until sunrise. Unbeknownst to them, the reason for these unusual hours is that all of the bar patrons are vampires, who prey upon their customers once the doors are closed. The film then plays out as the thieves and the family they took hostage try to survive the night without turning into one of the bloodsuckers.
Flash forward to 2014, where the cult classic is being adapted into a T.V. program, simply titled FROM DUSK TILL DAWN: THE SERIES. It will start out very similarly to the movie, with the Gecko brothers on the run. The show premieres on the El Rey channel on March 11th, 2014. Check out the first poster and trailer below!
Directed by Robert Rodriguez, Eduardo Sanchez, and Joe Menendez, FROM DUSK TILL DAWN: THE SERIES stars D.J. Cotrona as Seth Gecko, Zane Holtz as Richie Gecko, Brandon Soo Hoo as Scott Fuller, Jesse Garcia as Ranger Freddie Gonzalez, and Samantha Esteban as Monica Garza.
