SFX 246 PREVIEW Stars Come Out For Dusk Till Dawn

Don Johnson, Adrianne Palicki and Robert Patrick will appear in the TV series based on the 1996 vampire crime film

Yep, in a few days time there's going to be a TV show based on the movie by Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino. From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series , the first original scripted show produced for Rodriguez's just-launched El Rey TV network, will launch in the US on Tuesday 11 March.

Executive producer and showrunner Carlos Coto (of TV's Nikita ) tells the new issue of SFX : "The show is about, in a lot of ways, one brother trying to save another brother ... There's [another] character who plays a major role, Santanico Pandemonium – the Salma Hayek character – played by Eiza González. She's much more of a major character in the series, not in the beginning but eventually."

Other familiar faces appearing in season one include Don Johnson (as Earl McGraw), nearly-Wonder Woman Adrianne Palicki, and Robert Patrick.

Rodriguez will direct four or five episodes himself, while Blair Witch Project co-director Eduardo Sanchez will helm one. The Walking Dead 's Greg Nicotero oversees make-up effects as he did on the original film.
