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.
