Director Robert Rodriguez is throwing the full weight of his name and directorial prowess behind his new creation and his co-new creation.

The flag-ship TV series of the EL Rey Network will be a new From Dusk Till Dawn TV series. Robert Rodriguez has chosen to not only produce the From Dusk Till Dawn TV series but direct the first two episodes to ensure that the series is started with the right tone and with the right eye. Each episode of the series will be an hour long.

From Rodriguez on the series:

If the movie’s the short story, the series is the novel. We have assembled an amazing cast and crew, and viewers can expect to be part of a wild ride when the series premieres on El Rey Network next spring.

On the series:

The show will remake and expand the movie in ten episodes, with D.J. Cotrona (G.I. Joe: Retaliation) as Seth Gecko, Zane Holtz (The Perks of Being a Wallflower) as Richie Gecko, Jesse Garcia (Sons of Anarchy) as new character Texas Ranger Freddie Gonzalez, and Don Johnson (Django Unchained, Miami Vice) as Sheriff Earl McGraw.

A detailed plot synopsis for the From Dusk Till Dawn TV series:

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 an escape route to Mexico, Seth and Richie encounter former minister Jacob Fuller and his family who they take hostage. Using the family RV to make a run for the Mexican border, chaos ensues when the group detours to a strip club that is unknowingly populated by vampires, and forces them 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 vampires.
